Employee Navigator's Self Service EDI product is a tool that allows the user to configure and transmit ANSI 834 4010 or 5010 carrier files for medical, dental & vision plans. Please note that the EDI engine generates full files only; change only files are unsupported.
PLEASE NOTE: The below instructions only need to be followed to request a new carrier template to be set-up.
TO REQUEST A NEW CARRIER CONFIGURATION:
Licensee to submit a complete packet in one email to firstname.lastname@example.org, which includes the following items:

*Items 3-6 must be obtained from your carrier contact
Employee Navigator will reject any packet that does not have all of the required pieces of information.
- General Guidelines:
- Employee Navigator will not start carrier set-up until the set-up form, companion guide, carrier contact and transmission information are received.
- Employee Navigator cannot guarantee a go live date and the time varies based on the time of year and carrier requirements.
- Employers/Brokers should not change their current process of notifying the carrier of adds, terms and changes until all phases of EDI implementation have been completed.
- Employee Navigator updates our software and support articles regularly and therefore require users to subscribe to the Self Service EDI forums.
- EDI New Carrier Set-up Fees are billed immediately upon receipt of the order to the licensee.
- EDI user must be a designated a premier system user.
- Employee Navigator only offers one 1:1 training at no additional charge. During the training, we will walk you through one file implementation process. If you require an additional training session, there are additional fees associated with this, starting at $250 per hour.
- Self Service Clients:
- For a new carrier file configuration, EN will generally complete the carrier set-up in approximately 5-10 business days.

- If you are requesting a new carrier AND need to complete new user 1:1 training, please indicate in the support ticket. You will be required to also attach the Group/Account Structure to the ticket. This document is provided to you by your carrier contact.
