Missing/Invalid Payer ID: Handling Claim Rejections
Missing/Invalid Payer ID: This rejection is stating that the payer ID that was used on the claim is not a valid payer ID for electronic claims submission through your billing software. Claims are most often rejected due to incorrect or invalid information that does not match what’s on record with the payer/insurance company. Medical claim rejections can stand in the way of reimbursements, and ultimately, practice revenue. Rejections can come from either the clearinghouse or the insurance payer. A rejection status does not necessarily indicate that the payer has determined that the claim is not payable.

To be able to send claims through a clearinghouse, an electronic connection has to be made between the payer and clearinghouse. While each payer has its own unique payer ID, there are instances when the clearinghouse has a payer ID for that payer that differs from the ID the payer uses. In these instances, claims should be submitted using the clearinghouse payer ID. The clearinghouse will forward the claims to the payer using an outbound payer ID. The person billing the claims will not need to take any additional steps to complete this.
