Get paid faster and reduce administrative paperwork with electronic funds transfer (EFT) and electronic remittance advice (ERA).
When you enroll in EFT, Humana claims payments are deposited directly in the bank account(s) of your choice.
EFT payment transactions are reported with file format CCD+, which is the recommended industry standard for EFT payments. The CCD+ format is a NACHA Automated Clearing House (ACH) corporate payment format with a single, 80-character addendum record capability. The addendum record is used by the originator to provide additional information about the payment to the recipient. This format is also referenced in the ERA (835 data file). Contact your financial institution if you would like to receive this information.
Fees may be associated with EFT payments. Consult with your financial institution for specific rates.
The ERA replaces the paper version of the explanation of remittance (EOR). Humana delivers 5010 835 versions of all ERA remittance files that are compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Humana utilizes Availity® as the central gateway for delivery of 835 transactions. You can access your ERA through your clearinghouse or through the secure provider tools available at the Availity Web Portal or Humana.com.
Fees may be associated with ERA transactions. Check with your clearinghouse for specific rates.
