Online Remittance Advice
Provider Administrative Policy
DisclaimerOur provider administrative policies contain information regarding claims submission, reimbursement, and other information in order to achieve an efficient relationship with our providers. These policies are not an authorization or explanation of benefits. Blue Cross of Idaho retains the right to add to, delete from and otherwise modify this policy in accordance with our provider contracts.
Hard copy paper remittance advices are no longer mailed to Idaho medical providers. Remittance advices must be retrieved online at bcidaho.com.
This shift to online access benefits providers by enabling you to access current and historical remittance advices with the click of a button, and saves Blue Cross of Idaho the administrative costs of handling paper copies.
We post updated remittance advices on our Web site every Monday. Simply log in to the secure provider portal and select ‘Remittance Information' to view a current or previous Blue Cross, Federal Employee Program (FEP), or Medicare Advantage remittance advice. If your office receives an electronic 835, that process will remain unchanged.
We encourage all providers to register for electronic funds transfer (EFT). This electronic payment process offers you many benefits, including:
Automatic deposits of your weekly remittance payments into your bank account.
- Automatic weekly EFT payment voucher via email.
- Automatic payments posted to your account on Wednesdays, with the exception of a Monday holiday.
- No need to wait for the mail carrier to deliver your payment.
- Reduces the operating cost of manually handling a paper check for your administrative, accounting or management staff.
Register for EFT today! Simply log on to the provider portal on the Blue Cross of Idaho Web site at bcidaho.com and complete an EFT agreement located under ‘Remittance Information.' Please complete the EFT registration form in its entirety and allow at least 10 business days for the bank verification process before you begin receiving EFT payments.
Note: To enroll in EFT or access your remittance advices, you must be registered on the Blue Cross of Idaho Web site and have your user I.D. and password.
