How to Interface to the PDC Clearinghouse(tm)
Choose one of these methods to connect to The PDC Clearinghouse
HCFA Text Image format:
This format can be used by all billing systems. To generate a claim file
you simply print your HCFA forms to a file instead of the printer. Many
billing systems have this feature built into their menus. In any case,
it is easy to set this up on your system. After you generate an image
file, you will upload the file to the PDC Clearinghouse via
dial-up modem or the Internet. The PCD Clearinghouse will then convert
the image file to a HIPAA compatible file, and forward your claims
to the Payers.
If you don't have a billing system in your office, you can use the PDC Web-site to enter your claims. This is a secure HTTPS connection that will let you enter Patient and Claim Data right through your Web Browser. Click here for more information.
The PDC Clearinghouse is fully compatible with DocPro(tm) from PDC. The
two systems were designed Paton Data Co., and they operate smoothly together.
These systems were previously provided to providers at no charge by
Anthem BCBS and Mass BCBS, and many billing systems in New England were
previously interfaced to them. The PDC Clearinghouse is fully
compatible with these systems. Our clearinghouse system will take the
files that your billing system now generates, run them through our editor,
and convert the data to HIPAA format. You will simply stop using the
extra software (MACH) that you have on your system. Instead you will
upload the MACH claim files to the PDC Clearinghouse using standard Windows
