|Electronic Funds Transfer for Ohio Dentists
Ohio law R.C. §3901.381 requires third-party payers (such as Aetna) to transmit payments electronically to a contracted provider who sends electronic claims. Using Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is a great complement to sending electronic claims. If you send claims electronically, Ohio law requires us to ask you to either enroll in EFT, or sign an opt-out form stating you don't want to enroll in EFT.
By enrolling in EFT you'll enjoy:
- Prompt, secure electronic payments right to your bank account(s).
- Reduced mail coming to your office, which can save your staff time.
- More effective business management. You'll save paper and have an easy audit trail.
- Safety — you won't have the threat of lost or stolen checks.

Return the enrollment form today and begin receiving faster payments. Simply complete and fax the ERA/EFT enrollment form to the number shown on the form.
Once your enrollment is completed, you'll receive confirmation and begin receiving payments directly to your bank account.
If you decide EFT is not for you, simply return the opt-out form.
