You can participate in eServices for Railroad Medicare if you have a signed electronic data interchange (EDI) Enrollment Agreement on file with Palmetto GBA Railroad Medicare. If you are already submitting claims electronically to Railroad Medicare, you do not have to submit a new EDI Enrollment Agreement.

If you do not have an EDI Enrollment Agreement on file with Railroad Medicare, you will receive an error message in red at the top of your screen when you attempt to register. The EDI Enrollment Agreement is a form that is included in the Railroad Medicare EDI Enrollment Packet. If you do not have an EDI agreement on file with us, please go to the Railroad Medicare EDI Enrollment Packet page. The EDI Enrollment Agreement PDF link is located at the bottom of the page. The PDF contains instructions for completing and submitting the form.

Registering for Multiple Palmetto GBA Jurisdictions
If you are registered in eServices for Palmetto GBA Jurisdiction J or M, you will need to register separately for Railroad Medicare to access information for your Railroad Medicare patients and claims. You will be assigned a different user ID for each line of business and each PTAN/NPI combination.

To access information for your Railroad Medicare patients, you must sign into eServices using your Railroad Medicare user ID or select that account from the drop- down if you have linked accounts. For instructions on linking multiple eServices accounts, see section 12.0 Account Linking in the eServices User Manual (PDF, 8.25 MB).

Helpful Hints
There are help buttons and links on each screen. The links will take you to a PDF document with information about the system.

You must register separately for each PTAN/NPI combination. Each PTAN/NPI combination will have a unique user ID.

Users may currently submit attachments up to 40 MB in size to eClaims and forms. While there is no limit to the number for files that can be attached to the form, the combined size of all attachments cannot exceed 150 MB in size. All attachments must be in PDF format unless otherwise noted.

Only one provider administrator per PTAN/NPI combination can initially register. If you are the first person to register a PTAN/NPI combination, you will be registered as the provider administrator and can add more users through the Admin tab. You can assign back-up administrators. Keep in mind that these administrators will have access to all information functions by default. You can also add provider users who have access to individual functions, such as eligibility or claims status.

If you suspect misuse or suspicious use of the system, please contact Railroad Medicare immediately by calling our Provider Contact Center (PCC). Representatives can be reached at 888-355-9165 (Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET for all time zones with the exception of PT, which receives services from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
