Jurisdiction J Part A MAC

Part A Providers in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee

As a result of the JJ transition occurring in two segments, Part A on January, 29, 2018, and Part B on February 26, 2018, the ability to submit documentation through esMD is temporarily unavailable for Jurisdiction J Part A providers. Providers may resume submission through esMD on February 27, 2018. As an alternative, providers may use Palmetto GBA eServices, fax or hardcopy methods to submit necessary documentation.

Medicare is removing Social Security Numbers from Medicare cards. New cards with a number unique to each patient will replace the old cards, which will be mailed between April 2018 and April 2019. This change will help protect the patient’s identity. #NewCardNewNumber
