Effective July 1, 2021, WSI will accept medical bills solely through Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). A medical provider will need to work through WSI’s exclusive vendor, Carisk Intelligent Clearinghouse, for EDI submission. WSI covers the transaction fee, so there is no cost to a medical provider for submitting a medical bill through Carisk.
Unique benefits of submitting a medical bill through Carisk include:
- Error-proof submissions with a 97% first-pass clean claims rate
- Automatic notification of WSI’s receipt of a medical bill
- Ability to track and manage e-claims
- Unlimited attachments
- Free storage of all bills and medical records
EDI also allows a provider to combine multiple dates of service into 1 bill and combine notes into 1 PDF attachment, if the billing provider is the same for all services. This is not to exceed 50 service lines or 12 diagnosis codes.
To establish an EDI connection when a medical provider is new to EDI, contact Carisk by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 888-238-4792. To establish an EDI connection when a medical provider currently uses a clearinghouse other than Carisk, contact the other clearinghouse to have them work with Carisk.
