Getting Started

 

Online Registration

EDISS 'Connect' is a user-friendly online registration tool that allows providers to update basic facility information, manage billing NPIs, update lines of business, add or change vendor associations, and select electronic transactions online.

The use of Connect is required for all providers. Begin your online enrollment today by clicking on the following link: EDISS 'Connect'.

Getting Started Checklist

For providers, the initial registration process requires a billing NPI to be entered to establish the account. Additional billing NPI's may be added after the account has been created.

The following information is needed for registration:

  • NPI
  • TIN
  • Contact/demographic information
  • Vendor Submitter ID (If a clearinghouse or billing service will be utilized)


Note: EDISS does not send out a notification once a transaction has been moved to production. Providers can monitor this under the Manage Transactions tab in their account, and Vendors can review the Vendors Checking Provider Status and Submitter ID tutorial below.
