EFT Resources

​​​​​​​​​​As of January 1, 2019, all participating providers must register for and maintain electronic funds transfer (EFT) capability for the payment of claims, capitation, and incentive-based programs. EFT registration enables a direct electronic payment from AmeriHealth to your bank account versus mailed check payments that can be lost or take several days to reach you.​

This requirement is reflected in the Provider Manual for Participating Professional Providers and the Hospital Manual for Participating Hospitals, Ancillary Facilities, and Ancillary Providers.

Note: For AmeriHealth Administrators, please visit Instamed for EFT enrollment information.
