Electronic Claims Information
The Principal Financial Group has been receiving claims via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) since 1982. EDI is an efficient, cost-effective way of filing claims. It can reduce your administrative time, increase claim accuracy and speed of claim payment since no mail time is involved.
Many providers have taken advantage of the time and cost savings that EDI has to offer. If you have the capability or are interested in filing claims electronically with the Principal Financial Group, we have two clearinghouses available for receiving claims electronically:
- Emdeon: 877.363.3666 or www.emdeon.com
- Emdeon One (formerly Capario): 800.586.6870 or www.capario.com
- TESIA: 800.724.7240, x4 or www.tesia.com
The Principal Financial Group Payer number is 61271.
If you prefer to file claims via mail, please refer to the patient’s identification card for the correct mailing address.
