Attention Clearinghouses, Submitters, & Billing Agents!

Transition to the Colorado interChange

On March 1, 2017 Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE) will assume fiscal agent operations on behalf of Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid program) and Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+). These operations include the transition to the Colorado interChange (a new claims payment system) and a new provider Web Portal.

In order to submit batch claims to the Colorado interChange system, you MUST enroll as a Trading Partner for the Colorado interChange, and pass test transactions for HIPAA compliance.

Only one Trading Partner application needs to be completed per Trading Partner, even if the Trading Partner represents multiple providers. Accurate and timely completion of the profile form will prevent delays in testing and approval for production processing.

Step 1:

Please download and review this Getting Started Guide for enrollment instructions. 

Step 2:

Complete your Trading Partner enrollment.

Step 3:

Download this Testing Packet, complete the testing process and receive approval to submit production transactions.

Step 4:

Register for the new provider Web Portal as a "Billing Agent" and assign a Trading Partner Administrator.

Step 5:

After you are approved for production transactions, send your TPID to the providers you submit for. For your convenience, we’ve provided these suggested instructions for your providers. We recommend that you download and customize these instructions prior to sending them to the providers you submit for.  

Step 6:

Providers you submit for add you as a Registered Billing Agent/Clearinghouse/Switch Vendor (see instructions in step 5).

Step 7:

Submit production batch claims on or after March 1, 2107.
