Important note about payers
When submitting claims to Candid, please ensure you are using the exact
payer_name that is listed below. The relationship between
payer_id is not one-to-one, meaning that certain
payer_ids are used for multiple payers. As such, Candid has to do a match on a combination of
payer_id to determine the right place to send the claim in those instances.
