Enroll in Electronic Claims Submission
Palmetto GBA encourages providers to submit their claims electronically and to utilize the electronic features we offer. You can also access certain claim and patient eligibility records, and retrieve your remittance notices electronically. Claims may be filed with Palmetto GBA electronically (this applies to most Medicare providers) or on paper if certain conditions or exceptions exist (PDF).
We have created a one-minute video highlighting the Electronic Data Interchange registration process. After viewing the video please complete a brief survey.
