Additional electronic payments offered with Virtual Credit Card optionTexas Children's Health Plan
You now have an additional payment option The Virtual Credit Card (VCC) has been made available through ChangeHealth, previously known as Emdeon. This option is available for all providers. VCC allows providers to accept a virtual payment instead of a paper check or electronic funds transfers. When you use VCC, providers will receive a unique 16-digit credit card number for every payment made by Texas Children’s Health Plan. That number is then keyed into your credit card terminal to receive payment transfer.
Texas Children’s Health Plan encourages all providers to move to an electronic payment one of two options: Electronic Funds Transfer or VirtualCredit Card payments.
Providers have the following options once they receive the introduction letter from ChangeHealth:
- Contact ChangeHealth to opt in to electronic funds transfer or VCC.
- Contact ChangeHealth to stay with paper checks.
- No action by the provider will be tacit approval – you will start to receive VCC payments and may contact ChangeHealth at any time to change your choice of payment method.
If you receive a VCC and do not want it, it can be voided by ChangeHealth and a paper check sent.
