Testing Process

Vendors will need a vendor test ID with CEDI beginning with a V08 to preform testing.

  1. If you do not have a vendor test ID, please send an e-mail to the CEDI Help Desk to request a vendor test ID. You will need to include the name of the software and contact information.
    • If you already have a vendor test ID, please send an e-mail to the CEDI Help Desk to let them know that you would like to begin testing. Please provide the name of the software and contact information. Any required testing forms will be e-mailed.
       
  2. Software vendors will also need to complete the Vendor Testing Plan located on the CEDI Web site under Vendor Testing Information.

  3. Once approval is given by CEDI to begin testing, the software vendor will need to contact the CEDI Help Desk at 866-311-9184 for the initial password or a password reset if the ID has not been used in a while.

  4. All software vendors will need to send their test files under their vendor test ID. Connection to submit test files to the CEDI Gateway will be provided by Network Service Vendors. A list of approved Network Service Vendors is available on the CEDI Web site under Telecommunications.

  5. Once testing is completed successfully, CEDI will send an e-mail confirmation with approval. Please follow all instructions provided in the confirmation e-mail before sending production claims.
