(08) Private Insurers – Aetna EDI Connect


Aetna EDI Connect allows providers, billing companies and vendors to submit their electronic transactions to us free of charge, without using a third-party vendor. Aetna EDI Connect can be an important asset for you if your practice management software is able to submit files that conform to ASC X12 standards and HIPAA requirements. Your technical support staff can help you understand these requirements. Use Aetna EDI Connect to send and receive X 12-formatted files directly between you and Aetna by using one of these three methods:
FTP over the SSL Servlet which automatically encrypts your information
FTP which requires you to encrypt files with Pretty Good Privacy or PGP
HTTP secure browser
