Availity Essentials

Availity Essentials is a secure, one-stop, self-service, multi-payer portal and our preferred choice for:  

  • Direct data entry claim submissions (professional and facility) and electronic data interchange (EDI) claims using the Availity EDI Clearinghouse.
  • Checking eligibility and benefits.
  • Claims status tracking.

Connectivity exists between Availity and ProviderConnect, eServices, and Payspan. If you use those solutions for claims submissions, you may continue to do so.


For information on the transition to Availity Essentials, please see the Carelon Behavioral Health Transition to Availity Essentials Provider Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
