NOTE

The JSON attributes in our APIs use snake-case, with the first letter of the attribute in lower case as in tradingPartnerServiceId (is the Payer ID; this will vary based on the payer you want to connect to). Our APIs are case-sensitive and your JSON request body must adhere to this convention.

The production endpoint queries to determine patient eligibility through an X12 270 request. It formats the request in JSON for an Eligibility status HTTP query for a patient. It receives an EDI 271 response, which is translated to JSON as the response body. It makes this popular EDI transaction more accessible to developers and to users’ applications. We manage the X12 standards in the background and give you efficient access to medical subscriber or dependent plan membership, copays, co-insurances, deductibles, and more, in an easy-to-use and human-readable format.
