Access Change Healthcare API

API URLs

You can access all Change Healthcare APIs using the following URLs. You will have a separate set of credentials for each URL:

  • one set for the sandbox environment
  • one set for production environment

Sandbox environment

https://sandbox.apigw.changehealthcare.com

This is a testbed where you can test our API capabilities.

Production environment

https://apigw.changehealthcare.com

📘

NOTE

Some API collections also support a separate API for Raw-X12 EDI transactions. You can send your API request and receive your responses in X12 format instead of JSON. We provide the Postman collection for testing and investigation API usage; it is not a substitute for a console used in a business context for processing eligibility requests and claims requests of various types.
