Payer ID Tip Sheet
What is Payer ID?
A Payer ID is a unique ID number that is assigned to an insurance company for the purpose of transmitting provider claims electronically. Each company has a specific number that must be used in order to achieve proper adjudication of the claim.
How does the Payer ID affect claims submitted to NH Healthy Families?
NH Healthy Families accepts claims for both medical and behavioral health billing. Both types of claims are received within the same billing system and are routed to two separate platforms. In order for the platforms to receive the appropriate designated claim, the claim must indicate the medical or behavioral health correct unique Payer ID number.
