EDI Testing

  1. Contact the Medicaid EDI Help Desk before beginning any testing.
  1. Help Desk staff will make sure your EDI Enrollment is complete and will establish your test status. You will be asked to provide the Medicaid Provider Numbers you plan to use in your test files. These numbers must be loaded into our test region (an overnight process) before testing can begin.
  1. After test status has been established, you will be notified by Help Desk staff and you may submit your test file to your "In Box" on the server.
  1. Test results are placed in your "Out Box" on the server. Communicate with the Medicaid EDI Help Desk throughout the testing process. At least two successful test files are required before approval for production.

TEST FILE REQUIREMENTS FOR CLAIMS:

Each test file must have 20 to 25 claims per test file.

If you submit claims for more than one provider, the test file must contain claims for more than one provider but does not need to contain a claim for every provider. A maximum of 10 provider numbers will be used.

TEST FILE REQUIREMENTS FOR OTHER TRANSACTIONS:

Contact the Medicaid EDI Help Desk to establish a test plan.
