EDI Enrollment

Published 02/16/2024

Railroad Medicare providers will need the following information to enroll in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI): Railroad Medicare Provider Transaction Access Number (PTAN), National Provider Identifier (NPI), and demographic information for the location. To verify if you have a Railroad Medicare PTAN, and to request a new PTAN if you do not have one, you may use our online Railroad Medicare PTAN Lookup and Request Tool.

  1. If you only want access to Palmetto GBA’s eServices portal, please fill out an EDI Enrollment Agreement (PDF) with separate EDI Enrollment Agreement instructions (PDF).
  2. If you will be submitting directly to Palmetto GBA and not using a clearinghouse, please complete the Direct Submitter forms (PDF) with separate Direct Submitter forms instruction (PDF). You will need to select a Network Service Vendor (PDF) or an Approved Vendor (PDF) if you have not already chosen one.
  3. If you are using a Billing Service or a Clearinghouse to submit your claims, please complete the Billing Service-Clearinghouse forms (PDF) with separate Billing Service-Clearinghouse forms instruction (PDF) once you have discussed what EDI services they will be providing for you.

Palmetto GBA EDI has created an overview of the Railroad Medicare EDI Enrollment process (PDF) outlining EDI options available to all submitters and a handy list of common EDI Acronyms and Terms (PDF).
