Electronic Submission of Medical Docs Trial Goes Live

James Carroll, for HealthLeaders Media , March 13, 2012

Berglund says, "The ultimate point I'd make with esMD is that this is now available and providers should be using it, as it's sure to be more effective, secure and expedient than sending your records out in the mail."

As of September 2011, the following review contractors have been approved to participate in the esMD program:


  • Region A Medicare recovery audit  (DCS)
  • Region B Medicare recovery audit  (CGI)
  • Medicare administrative J1 (Palmetto GBA)
  • Medicare administrative J3 (Noridian)
  • Medicare administrative J4 (Trailblazer)
  • Medicare administrative J5 (WPS)
  • Medicare administrative J9 (First Coast)
  • Medicare administrative J11 (Palmetto)
  • Medicare administrative J12 (Highmark)
  • Medicare administrative J14 (NHIC)
  • Comprehensive error rate testing (CERT) contractor
  • Program error rate measurement (PERM) contractor
  • DME Medicarea JA (NHIC)
  • DME Medicare administrative JD (Noridian)
