About EFT

When you enroll in EFT, Humana claims payments are deposited directly in the bank account(s) of your choice. The funds are delivered within one day of the ERA.

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.

Humana delivers 5010 835 versions of all ERA remittance files that are compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
