In OpenEMR 6.1 (I’m presuming it is the dev version), the Healthcare company I work for now wishes to implement the use of this feature for submitting X12’s so that our billing department doesn’t have to download the X12’s and manually submit them. I was given the SFTP Login Credentials and SFTP Pass Credentials (nothing beyond those, leaving the other 4 SFTP fields empty, I will include a picture at the bottom to showcase what I mean by empty fields). I also found wherein Administration -> Globals -> Billing that I click and save the option to “Automatically SFTP Claims to X12 Partner.”
My main questions regarding this would be:
- Do all the fields in the X12 partners for SFTP need to be filled out for this feature to work, or just the login and pass as that’s all we were given.?
- Does the billing department need to follow any additional steps after they click on the option to “Generate X12” or is there a different route needed to submit them using SFTP?
I’ve searched for possible answers through the codebase, scoured the community, and tried contacting our clearing house (they would only give the login and password info). So now, I am asking on here with the hopes that someone may be able to explain/ answer my questions.
