Reporting On-Demand Application Now Available via AvailityTM

Posted February 2, 2017

The new Reporting On-Demand viewer application is now available in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) branded Payer Spaces section on the Availity Web portal. This new tool permits registered Availity users to readily view, download, save and/or print the Provider Claim Summary (PCS) online, along with other reports as they become available. For dates of service beginning Dec. 1, 2016, this tool offers you the opportunity to obtain claim outcome results for multiple patients, in one central location. 

Providers currently enrolled to receive the Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA) from BCBSIL will continue to receive the Electronic Payment Summary (EPS), but with the additional opportunity to access the PCS as a complimentary option. If you currently rely on paper claim summaries, Availity registration is strongly recommended to gain access to the report viewer application. As a reminder, effective March 1, 2017, claim summary information will no longer be distributed via paper mailing. 


BCBSIL is hosting one-hour educational Reporting On-Demand: Obtaining Provider Claim Summaries webinars for you to learn more about the application. New and existing Availity users are highly encouraged to attend. To register for a complimentary online training session, select a date and time below.
