While there are many different types of files that can constitute as EDI and the file formats may differ from carrier to carrier, MGM simply separates them into just two categories: Standard and Custom EDI Files.
Standard EDI File
Through many years of service, MGM’s Benefit Technology team has already set up a multitude of EDI templates that have been thoroughly tested with a variety of insurance carriers. These files are our standard EDI files. They are what is typically included in THEbenefitsHUB package.
Customized EDI File
However, in the event that a client or carrier wants anything different than what is standardly available, these files are looked at as custom. Custom EDI Files can slow the implementation process of the system as they are custom built and will need to be thoroughly tested. As a result, if requested, additional charges for a custom EDI file may apply.
