Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan requires that you submit all encounters electronically. We encourage you to submit all your claims and receive your payments electronically as well, for faster processing and payment, using electronic data interchange (EDI).  

EDI allows paperless encounter submissions, as well as billing and payment for healthcare services and supplies, automating many types of routine inquiries.

EDI benefits

  • Reduced administrative costs. The average physician's office can save up to $46,000 annually using electronic transactions for common administrative tasks, according to a report by The Milliman Group (PDF, 96KB) 
  • Improved accuracy of billing and posting information   
  • Reduced office paperwork
  • Improved cash flow
  • Faster claims processing
  • Improved security for protected information


Using EDI, you can automatically post electronic remittance advice (ERA) to your practice management system, reducing data entry, speeding up patient billing, and freeing up staff for more important tasks.
