$ Go with Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) $

The decision to be paid via EFT means Medicare will send payments directly to your Financial Institution and are available in your account the next business day! There is no cost with the EFT option, it eliminates the risk of Medicare checks being lost or stolen in the mail, and it ensures continuity of payment in the event of a natural disaster. Visit our EFT Agreement page and complete the CMS-588.

Do You Have Time for a Short Survey?

Do You Have Time for a Short Survey?

Once a year during this time period, we offer the ForeSee Website Customer Satisfaction survey at an increased frequency to gather as much feedback as possible. Feedback from the provider community helps us shape the WPS Medicare website, but we understand that a provider's office is a busy place. So, we've shortened the ForeSee survey to make it easier for you to find the time to complete it. Please help us build a better website by completing this short survey.
