    The Maryland Department of Information Technology (“DoIT”) offers translations of the content through Google Translate. Because Google Translate is an external website, DoIT does not control the quality or accuracy of translated content. All DoIT content is filtered through Google Translate which may result in unexpected and unpredictable degradation of portions of text, images and the general appearance on translated pages. Google Translate may maintain unique privacy and use policies. These policies are not controlled by DoIT and are not associated with DoIT’s privacy and use policies. After selecting a translation option, users will be notified that they are leaving DoIT’s website. Users should consult the original English content on DoIT’s website if there are any questions about the translated content.

    DoIT uses Google Translate to provide language translations of its content. Google Translate is a free, automated service that relies on data and technology to provide its translations. The Google Translate feature is provided for informational purposes only. Translations cannot be guaranteed as exact or without the inclusion of incorrect or inappropriate language.

As such, DoIT does not guarantee and does not accept responsibility for, the accuracy, reliability, or performance of this service nor the limitations provided by this service, such as the inability to translate specific files like PDFs and graphics (e.g. .jpgs, .gifs, etc.).

    DoIT provides Google Translate as an online tool for its users, but DoIT does not directly endorse the website or imply that it is the only solution available to users.

    Electronic Billing and EDI Transactions

    Electronic data interchange (EDI) is the automated transfer of data in a specific format following specific data content rules between a health care provider and Medicaid, or between Medicaid and another health care plan.

    • For billing, EDI speeds payment and eliminates costs associated with paper claims.
    • You can submit electronic claims through a clearinghouse or through your existing, HIPAA-compliant business management software.

    This information is for health care providers, clearinghouses and billing services that submit transactions to or receive transactions from Medicaid.

    Testing Requirement and Instructions

    To use EDI, a provider or clearinghouse must first test transmissions on the Maryland Medicaid Electronic Exchange (MMEE). 

    Enroll in Testing 

    1. Email mdh.hipaaeditest@maryland.gov and include your company name, contact information and the type of EDI transaction you intend to submit. Include “Enrollment for HIPAA 5010 testing" in the email subject line.
    2. You will receive the 005010 TP EDI Enrollment Form, Submitter Identification Form and the Trading Partner Agreement. Email all completed and signed forms to mdh.hipaaeditest@maryland.gov.
    3. Upon receipt of the completed forms, MDH will enroll you for testing. You will receive a login, password, URL and connectivity instructions for the Maryland Medicaid Electronic Exchange (MMEE) web portal.
