eClaims Inquiry Overview


eClaims Inquiry is a web application which provides the ability for Trading Partners (Senders), Vendors, Insurers and Third Party Administrators (TPAs) to view both accepted and rejected claim transactions submitted to the Board. eClaims Inquiry also allows Insurers, Self-Insured Employers, Municipalities and TPAs the ability to view their payor compliance reports along with requesting review of any penalties associated with these reports.

Effective 9/20/2019 eClaims Inquiry has been expanded to include the ability for Flat File (FTP) Trading Partners (Senders) to view their FTP acceptance rate performance to determine if they are meeting the 90% acceptance rate target as stated in the eClaims Implementation Guide Part 3.9. The expansion includes the following reports:

FTP Acceptance Chart

This chart displays the target percentage of 90% and the actual FTP acceptance percentage per month. It also includes the number of transactions submitted, rejected and accepted in that month.

Transaction Errors by Rejection Reasons

This report includes rejections that returned listing error type along with the error message received for each field that was rejected each month. It includes two FROI/SROI examples that can be viewed in the eClaims Inquiry FROI/SROI transaction search application to develop a corrective action plan to improve coding of edits.

Transaction Errors by Claim Administrator Claim Number

This report is sorted by the Claim Administrator Claim number that returned the rejection in the month. It also includes the error message returned to assist in reviewing the error in the Claim Administratorís system to develop a corrective action plan to improve coding of edits.
