Communications to Submitters

New Enrollment

To submit or receive batch files (such as claims or eligibility) in the Colorado interChange system, submitters must enroll as a trading partner for the Colorado interChange and pass test transactions for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance.

Only one trading partner application needs to be completed per trading partner, even if the trading partner submits for multiple providers. Accurate and timely completion of the profile form will prevent delays in testing and approval for production processing.

A Trading Partner ID (TPID) is only needed to receive EDI information from or transmit  to the Colorado interChange, and only the submitter or receiver needs the TPID. 

Submitters of interactive (single) claims through the Provider Web Portal no longer need a TPID (unless to receive an 835).

If a TPID is not needed, it is not necessary to enroll as a trading partner.

  • Example 1: Clearinghouse XYZ submits batch claims for Dr. Jones. In this example, Clearinghouse XYZ needs a TPID; Dr. Jones does not.
  • Example 2: Dr. Pepper submits his own batch claims using software from a vendor. In this example, Dr. Pepper needs a TPID.
  • Example 3: Dr. Doolittle submits her own interactive (single) claims through the Web Portal. In this example, Dr. Doolittle does not need a TPID.
  • Example 4: In addition to submitting single claims through the Web Portal, Dr. Doolittle also has Clearinghouse XYZ submit batch claims for her. Clearinghouse XYZ needs a TPID (they can use the same TPID from example 1). Dr. Doolittle still does not need a TPID.
