A Georgia electronic data interchange payment is a payment the state or its agent sends or receives electronically using a computer software system, states Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia. The Georgia Department of Revenue has mandated use of the EDI system, notes its website.
Payers and vendors use EDI transactions to make and receive payments quickly and at low cost, notes Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia. The Georgia State Board of Workers Compensation has implemented EDI for data transfers, according to the agency. To transact business using EDI, including payment transfers, each transacting party signs an agreement to comply with certain standards and protocols, notes Scana Energy.
