Availity earns CAQH® CORE® Phase III certification

Availity said it earned a CAQH® Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE®) Clearinghouse Product Phase III Certification Seal.

This certification includes Availity´s wholly owned subsidiaries RealMed and HeW.

CAQH launched CORE to give providers consistent access to patient coverage information before or at the time of service using the electronic system of their choice for any patient or health plan, effectively reducing administrative burden and costs.

The CORE Seal was awarded after Availity successfully completed voluntary CORE Certification testing well ahead of the January 1, 2016, certification deadline, ensuring it can exchange healthcare Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA) information in conformance with the Phase III CAQH CORE EFT & ERA Operating Rules and Policies. The CORE Seal also ensures that Availity completed certification of Phase I and Phase II, demonstrating the company´s ability to meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act´s Operating Rules governing ERA and EFT.
