Authentication is required before Palmetto GBA is authorized to discuss Medicare information with a provider. The ePass is an eight-digit code providers can elect to receive, per each NPI and PTAN combination, following their first-time authentication when they call the Provider Contact Center (PCC). This ePass can then be used for the remainder of the day in order to authenticate. This code will be delivered in one of two ways:
The goal of the ePass is to ease provider burden by eliminating the need to repeatedly authenticate each time you contact the PCC in a given day. The ePass can then be used for the remainder of that business day in order to authenticate. Simply select Option 5 for ePass and Option 1 to enter your 8-digit ePass number.
This enhancement is in direct response to provider feedback with the goal of improving your provider experience with Palmetto GBA.
