Medicare EDI Trading Partners are required to use a Network Service Vendor (NSV) for connectivity to the EDI Gateway

Effective March 2, 2015, all Medicare EDI Trading Partners submissions and retrievals are required to use a Network Service Vendor (NSV) for connectivity to the EDI Gateway.
The elimination of the dial-up connection for Medicare transactions such as claims, remittances, and claim status inquiries, was implemented in support of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) security guidelines for Medicare contractors and due to the decreased availability of analog service.
Below is a list of Network Service Vendors (NSV) and their contact information. We do not exclusively endorse a specific NSV and suggest you research multiple vendors to ensure the services offered are the best solution for your business. To be considered as a NSV, email your information to, including “Network Service Vendor” in the subject line.
