Problem Creating EDI Claim Files Message

By 03/19/2019Insurance and EDI

Description

Every time you submit a claim through EDI, a file is created for both the sending of the message and the response received. Over time, the amount of sending and receiving files saved on your server becomes greater than your operating system can handle. The steps below will help guide you through clearing out old claim response files that are no longer needed.

The steps below apply to Version 5.0 and above.

If you are on a version older than 5.0, you can follow the steps listed immediately after this section.

  1. This window will appear upon attempting to send a claim when the storage capacity is reached.
  2. Select the EDI Purge option.
  1. Set the date in both dropdown menus so they are matching. You are required to keep responses for 45 days so the system will auto select the appropriate date, however, many offices choose to keep 2-3 months of data.
  2. Once your dates are set and matching, select the Ok button

Description

For users of Version 4.9 and below, follow the steps below to resolve this issue.

  1. Select Office from the top menu bar.
  2. Then select EDI Manager from the sub-menu
  1. Right click anywhere in the claims grid below.
  2. Then select Purge EDI Activity from the menu that appears.
