ELECTRONIC TOOLS

Receive Your CIGNA Remittance Reports Online

Did you know you will be able to access your CIGNA remittance reports [Direct Deposit Activity Reports (DDAR) and checkless Explanations of Payment (EOP)] for CIGNA medical plans* online in early 2011?

If you currently receive electronic funds transfer (EFT) payments from CIGNA, you will soon be able to access remittance reports online using the secure CIGNA for Health Care Professionals website (www.cignaforhcp.com). The online remittance reports, which will be available in PDF format, will be an exact copy of the paper version you currently receive in the mail.

Reconcile Payments Faster and Easier

Having access to remittance reports online means you can access the reports the same day you receive your deposit. Online remittance reports can also make it easy to store and search payment information, share it with your office staff, and obtain copies of reports anytime, just by visiting the CIGNA for Health Care Professionals website.

 

A single tracking number on your remittance reports, ERA and EFT helps make reconciling payments easier. Here’s where this number will be located:

  • On the EFT report from your bank, identified as the ‘Payment Trace Number’
  • On your ERA, in the ‘Reference Identification Field’ (or TRN02)
  • On the right side of the first page of your online remittance report
    Easy to Access

If you’re already registered for the CIGNA for Health Care Professionals website and have access to claims status inquiry, you will automatically have access to online remittance reports when they become available in early 2011. You will be able to log in to the CIGNA for Health Care Professionals website (www.cignaforhcp.com) and click the ‘Remittance Reports’ link under the Inquiry Tools section on the eServices page. You will also be able to access the online remittance report for a specific claim from the Claim Status Inquiry Detail webpage.

Primary Administrators: If you have staff who don’t yet have access to claim status inquiry and will need access to online remittance reports, log in to www.cignaforhcp.com > Assign Access > Add a New User/Modify a User > Check Claim Status.

If you’re not yet registered for the CIGNA for Health Care Professionals website, visit www.cignaforhcp.com and click ‘Register Now’.
