Payer Finder V1 Getting Started

Payer Finder v1 API

Change Healthcare's new Payer Finder v1 API enables you to search and filter through your entire clearinghouse. It is a read-only API service that you can use without any financial obligations to query for information in your payer database for key pieces of information.

📘

NOTE

Works with Change Healthcare (also internally known as Legacy Change, Emdeon, or Ark) payer list and Revenue Performance Advisor (known internally as RPA or Capario) that are now in the Payer Profile Database.
Does not work with ConnectCenter (aka Legacy Relay Health (LRH)) but planned for later release.

📘

NOTE

Explore the Payer Finder API in the Change Healthcare Payer Finder UI. For more information, contact your Change Healthcare representative.

For load testing and production data resting, we recommend using our APIs in production environment.

NOTE

  • If you only plan to use a few daily transactions, you can use our Payer Finder V1 API user interface (UI) for your Medical Network transaction needs.
    It provides most of the features supported by an API console but only allows manual entry for all data needed for a transaction. It contains Change Healthcare’s Payer Lists, the Payer List Enrollments wizard, and other API customer resources.
  • For providers sending hundreds of daily requests, we recommend using our APIs to be able to automate the submission processes and have a better fit for your business needs.
