Creating a claim batch for ANSI X12 837 and/or NSF file transmission
The following information applies to (1) sending a batch of ANSI X12 837 claims directly to your DMERC and/or commercial payers, and/or (2) sending a batch of NSF claims (commercial billing) to a switch (e.g., WebMD).
To prepare a claim batch:
A new batch file is created each time you click E-Bill. The file name includes the electronic receiver name, date/time created and file type (e.g., "DMERC_D_20040312153045._837.txt"). The default directory where these .txt files are stored is the shared Ascend directory on your Ascend server (e.g. "\\Server_Name\Ascend"). If necessary, you can change this default directory in the electronic receiver record of Ascend (Utilities/Electronic Receivers menu).
Note: When uploading the batch file to your electronic receiver, point to the most recent .txt file.
