Our robust network of payers helps your business succeed


Get access to hundreds of health plans all in one place


Join the more than 1 million people who connect every day to the Availity Essentials portal for easy access to claims, eligibility & benefits, authorizations, and more.

Essentials is a powerful resource that puts clinical, financial, and administrative information at your fingertips at no cost to providers. Access to hundreds of health plans all in one place eliminates the demand for multiple payer portals and passwords.


"Availity stays connected to health plans and all the changes, so as a provider, I don't have to."



We recently added the enhanced Essentials Plus option, which lets you submit claims, check eligibility, and check claim status for Cigna and UnitedHealthcare. Your Essentials Plus subscription also lets you check eligibility and claims status for an additional 70 payers.

Your Essentials Plus plan includes free transactions with hundreds of payers on Availity.

Essentials Plus uses the same intuitive workflows from the largest national plan to smaller regional and state plans. Subscription pricing allows smaller providers to manage their costs, based on transaction volume with the expanded payer list.

To access additional payers and start transactions immediately, administrators with current Essentials accounts can sign up for Essentials Plus in minutes through their online Subscription Center.

This addition to the lineup of solutions for healthcare providers complements the sponsored Essentials platform, our EDI Clearinghouse offering, and the premiere solution for managing revenue cycles, Essentials Pro.
