Information on the free software for viewing and printing electronic remittance advice (ERA)
First Coast Service Options Inc. (First Coast) wants to make your job as a Medicare Part B provider as easy as possible. MREP is free software that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has made available for Part B providers that sign up for ERA. You can find this MREP software on the First Coast Medicare provider website.
This software enables you to view and print ERA by importing health insurance portability and accountability act (HIPAA) 835 files received from First Coast. After importing the files, you may print the ERA in a format similar to standard paper remittance (SPR) or view it on screen, directly through the MREP software.
You can view the information several ways using the MREP software, including:
• Entire remittance report - ERA format similar to the SPR
• Tabbed information view - Six tabs to choose from to narrow the ERA information to only what is needed by the provider
• Special reports - Five reports to choose from to obtain specific ERA information
How do you get the free software?
After reviewing the guides, if you still need assistance with signing up for ERA and using the software, contact First Coast’s electronic data interchange (EDI) department at (888) 670-0940.
First Coast Service Options (First Coast) strives to ensure that the information available on our provider website is accurate, detailed, and current. Therefore, this is a dynamic site and its content changes daily. It is best to access the site to ensure you have the most current information rather than printing articles or forms that may become obsolete without notice.
