What is the purpose of the Payment & Remittance CAQH CORE Certification Test Suite?

The Payment & Remittance CAQH CORE Certification Test Suite defines specific certification testing requirements and detailed test scripts for each of the CAQH CORE Payment & Remittance Operating Rules to be completed by entities seeking CORE Certification. These detailed test scripts are not intended to exhaustively and comprehensively test all requirements of the Payment & Remittance Operating Rules; rather, they focus on a key subset of each rule’s requirements. CAQH CORE-authorized testing vendors use the scenarios and test scripts from the Payment & Remittance CAQH CORE Certification Test Suite in their CORE Certification testing products.
