Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Palmetto GBA's Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) division encourages providers to submit their claims electronically and to utilize certain electronic features we offer. You can also access certain claim and patient eligibility records, and retrieve your remittance notices electronically.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has approved version 5010 Base and Errata as the exclusive version for all ASC X12N electronic transaction sets used by Medicare. ASC X12 TR3 Implementation Guides for v5010 transactions are available through the ASC X12 Store.
