Electronic Funds Transfer - enrollment process

Electronic Funds Transfer allows the transfer of Medicare payments directly from Medicare to a provider’s bank account.

Enrollment Overview
The following is a high level overview of the EFT Enrollment Process:
  • EFT applications are received,  prepped and imaged
  • The applications are entered into our DME EFT Database, analyzed/verified for accuracy
  • A valid application is then entered in the VMS system for pre-note testing.
  • Once the testing is completed (typically a 2 week process) the file goes into production mode.
  • For those applications that failed the pre-note testing, a validation process is initiated including contact with the supplier to either verify or correct.
  • Incomplete applications are entered in the DME EFT Data Base and a letter is sent to the supplier requesting the missing information.
  • The normal processing time for a completely valid EFT application is 30 days.
  • Incomplete/incorrect applications will take longer than 30 days to finalize, based on how quickly the missing information is provided and processed.
Should you have a question about the status of your EFT enrollment application, please call 866-563-0049.
