To ensure a smooth transition to the new billing system, Fidelis Care wants to remind you to participate in electronic data transfer (EDI) and claims testing. 

Claims Testing Step #1:  If you would like to test claims for any of these services, please email BHClaimsTesting@fideliscare.org and we will send you a survey to complete.

Claims Testing Step #2:  Once a Fidelis Care Representative has contacted you to begin the testing process, you may begin sending files for claims testing. Please do not send test files prior to being contacted.

Fidelis Care is proud to be your health care partner. If you have any questions about Claims Testing, please contact your designated Behavioral Health Provider Specialist.

Submitting a Claims-Testing Request 

If your organization is interested in testing, please email BHClaimsTesting@fideliscare.org

Please fill out the survey completely to avoid processing delays. Once your survey has been received, a Fidelis Care Representative will contact you to begin the testing process. Please do not send test files before that time to avoid claim-processing issues. 

Electronic Submission

Fidelis Care strongly recommends using the electronic data interchange (EDI) system for claims submission. Electronic claims submissions expedite the processing and reimbursement of clean claims, reduce and/or eliminate the number of claims not being received, and prove timely submission through electronic acceptance reports.

•    Existing Providers:  If your organization currently submits claims to Fidelis Care, you are considered an existing provider. Existing providers who will be submitting claims may submit test claims through the normal EDI channels. Please prefix the file name with test_ and change ISA16 to T. Providers may use current members for testing or may request test member data from Fidelis Care.

•    New Providers:  Providers who have never before submitted claims to Fidelis Care should contact their clearinghouse or billing vendor to see if they have connectivity with Fidelis Care. Fidelis Care works with all major clearinghouses. If you are not working with an electronic submitter or if your clearinghouse does not have connectivity with Fidelis Care, please indicate that on the Fidelis Claims-Testing Survey, and a representative will contact you. Fidelis Care will provide test member data to all new providers interested in testing.
