The master payer list in the Billing and Scheduler products is taken from the Change Healthcare Trading Partner API. This API provides access to the most up-to-date payer details. Billing or office managers will be able to add new payers with the latest information into the system. This change will help prevent potential claim rejections caused due to incorrect payer information.

This implementation will only affect adding payers into the system. The payers already existing in the system, will remain the same.
