The Change Healthcare uses OAuth2 to create a secure connection with our API users, which requires a bearer authorization token to obtain access. For more information, see Security and Authorization v2.

  • Endpoint β€” apip/auth/v2/token β€” To request for a bearer token that can be used to access Change Healthcare APIs on the platform.

Healthcheck

The /healthcheck endpoint checks the operating status of the required API. It is a ping for the API entry points to ensure the entry points are accessible. It is the first thing you can do if something goes wrong.

Payer Finder API

Accepts JSON with a single-string 'x12' property that has a 270 EDI string and produces a JSON response with a single 'x12' property that has a 271 EDI string.
  • eligibility/v3/healthcheck β€” Checks the API health.
