We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 14.19 or OP 19. OP 19 is a member of the certified OP 14 family of products (official version is 14.19.1), which you may see in your software (such as in Help > About) and in the Help Center tabs labeled 14.19. You may also notice that the version number in content and videos may not match the version of your software, and some procedural content may not match the workflow in your software. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make these enhancements.

The $ED Record

Version 14.19

The $ED Record is a necessary component in e-billing. The $ED record is required for electronic 837 claims files to successfully pass to your clearinghouse.

This record MUST appear in both the address book and the staff provider directory.

In the case that someone at the office needs to be contacted regarding electronic claims submission, the $ED record needs to be in place as a staff member in the Staff Provider directory.  In most cases, there will be a duplicate staff member in the directory, however the distinction between the duplicate record will be the initials of the staff member.  As seen in the screen shot below "Doctor Test" is listed on the directory two times.  The difference is that "Doctor Test's" initials are "DRT" and "$ED". 

Note:  Deleting this record will cause your transmissions to fail.
