Remittance Advice

Policy Number: GP-X-044

Last Updated: Sept. 8, 2022 

Contracting providers receive direct payment from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE). They will also receive remittance advice (remit) indicating any liability (provider, member or BCBSNE)  

Tips about remits:

  • Remits are generated within 72 hours of payment. 
  • Most providers receive remits electronically.  
  • Paper remits are mailed within 72 hours of payment. 
  • Once a provider has converted to an electronic remit, paper remits are discontinued.  
  • The member Explanation of Benefits (EOB) and participating provider’s remit are sent simultaneously.  
  • Payment information is detailed for each claim on the remittance advice.  
  • Deductible, coinsurance, copay and noncovered charges are identified.  
  • Amounts considered provider responsibility/write-off are identified.  
  • If a patient account number is submitted on a claim, that number is included on the remittance advice.  

Information regarding offsets not immediately taken can be found in the Provider Level Adjustments document
