Palmetto GBA intends to demonstrate its commitment to our partnership by sharing with you the process improvements we implement based on your feedback. We value your comments and opinions, and have provided a number of ways for you to reach out to us, including the Provider Experience Survey. In addition to the direct feedback we regularly receive from our providers, we will be conducting quarterly focus groups, Ask-the-Contractor Teleconferences (ACTs) and Provider Outreach and Education Advisory Groups (POE-AGs) in order to uncover areas that are ripe for improvement. By working together we can enhance your experience and elevate the level of service, education, information and transparency you have come to expect from Palmetto GBA.

We value your feedback and your suggestions and we look forward to a culture of continual improvement in the way we conduct business and serve our providers. Because you have taken the time to provide feedback, Palmetto GBA has taken action to implement the following enhancements:

  • In response to provider feedback, we have updated the LCDs and Related Articles tables to designate which contract (Part A, Part B, Home Health or Hospice) they apply to.
  • We have extended the time that a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) code can be used. Providers are now able to use their MFA codes for up to 12 hours. This allows providers to simply reuse the last valid code issued. An MFA code will expire 12 hours from the time it was requested or when a new MFA code is generated.
  • ePass: Authentication is required before Palmetto GBA is authorized to discuss Medicare information with a provider. The ePass is an 8-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). 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.
  • To improve your customer service experience when calling our contact center:
    • Added the ability to select to go straight to a Customer Service Advocate (CSA) in the main menu
    • Minimized the number of up front messages played
    • Allowed CSAs to handle multiple inquiries per call
    • Reviewing top inquiry data and identifying providers to proactively schedule concierge appointments
  • Providers are able to give immediate feedback on their customer service experience with Palmetto GBA through our Provider Experience survey
  • Providers can now easily access their remits straight from the eServices claim status screen
  • We have simplified the Jurisdiction J Call Flowchart. This process allows callers to quickly navigate through the main menu for faster access to the information you need.
  • Multiple educational modules and tools were added in 2018:
