Additional User Account:
If a ProviderConnect account already exists for the provider or facility, and an office staff member needs their own unique ID/password, you
can check this box. If this secondary account needs to be disabled or deleted for any reason, it will be the provider’s responsibility to contact
the EDI Helpdesk immediately.
Super User Account:
Only check this box if you are registering to access ProviderConnect as an administrator to manage other users of your account.
Provider ID number:
You can retrieve your Beacon Health Options assigned provider number by reviewing any Provider Summary Vouchers/EOBs you have
previously received; the Provider # will be present at the beginning of each claim. Or, depending on what state and type of claims you will

Batch vs. Direct Claim Submission:
Direct Claim Submission: If you are a smaller practice, or happen to have a low volume of Professional claims (normally submitted on a
HCFA-1500 or CMS-1500), Single Claim Submission may be best and easiest. With this option, you can submit each claim directly on the
website, the member and provider information are verified, and you receive a claim number right away.
Batch Claim Submission: If you have to submit Institutional claims (submitted on a UB-92 or UB-04 form), and/or if you have a larger
volume of Professional Claims, you can select Batch Claim submission. With this feature, you will create your claims using either our EDI
Claims Link Software, or any practice management software that can create an 837 HIPAA file. You will then upload a batch file via our
website for processing. Claim numbers are usually available in about 1 business day. All new accounts are set up in test mode. A successful
test batch must be submitted, and the EDI Helpdesk contacted to switch to production mode.
Claim Adjustment: The ProviderConnect Online Adjustment Module allows users to electronically submit changes (adjustments) to
previously processed claims. This feature allows users to correct claims where the original result of the claim’s processing is not the correct
outcome for the services rendered or where information was submitted incorrectly on the original claim.
Commercial and Medicaid Claims:
We may need to create more than one online account for you if you need to submit both commercial and Medicaid claims.
If you only select commercial or Medicaid for now, and you need to add the other in the future, please contact the EDI Helpdesk and we can
make the appropriate updates for you. If no option is checked, the default will be Commercial Only.
