GHA EDI Open Forum Teleconferences

WPS Government Health Administrators (GHA) is pleased to announce the 2019 schedule for our EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) Open Forum Teleconferences. The calls will be for MAC J5 A and B states (IA, KS, MO and NE), MAC J5 National Part A and MAC J8 A and B states (MI and IN).

We will approach the call in much the same way CMS approaches its valuable Open Door Forums, promoting a forum that is less structured and encourages participants to ask whatever they choose, as long as it pertains to Medicare EDI. We look forward to your participation in these calls!

What is the GHA EDI Open Forum Teleconference?

In an effort to actively encourage providers to increase their use of EDI transactions, WPS is using this forum to give providers, clearinghouses, and vendors the information they need to: understand the Medicare program as it pertains to EDI; be informed early and often about changes; and exchange electronic transactions correctly.

These calls promote valuable interaction between the Medicare Contractor (WPS) and EDI customers. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and raise concerns regarding EDI. EDI team members are available during the call to provide education, give program updates, answer questions, and take feedback. In addition, we will provide necessary follow-up to any issues that cannot be resolved during the call time.

WPS Government Health Administrators encourages providers to participate in this important educational activity. You can access a recording of the most recent GHA EDI Open Forum teleconference on this website approximately one week following the event.
