EDI is a communications protocol for electronically transmitting secure business data.

This section provides highly technical information for:

  • Trading partners, such as billing organizations and clearinghouses.
  • Providers who create and maintain their own third-party software.
  • Third-party software vendors that create software for providers to submit claims.

Providers who want to use TexMedConnect to submit claims should visit the TexMedConnect page for more information.
