Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA) - Go Green! More Efficient!
If your office still receives Standard Paper Remittance (SPR) now is a great time to switch to ERA. Using ERA saves time and increases productivity by providing electronic payment adjustment information that is portable, reusable, retrievable, and storable. Trading partners can exchange the ERA with much greater ease than an SPR. Switching from receiving SPRs to ERAs can be fast, safe, and easy by contacting the WPS Medicare EDI department to establish Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) capabilities. Select the Contact Us link in the top right corner of this web page to find EDI contact information for your jurisdiction.
