Medicare M2 Project Transition Notes:

 

Empire Medicare M2 Project

 

National Government Service, Inc. will be migrating from their current EDI Gateway to a new data center located in Shelbyville, KY. As part of this migration process the current Medicare Submitter ID (usually the facility Federal ID#) is being replaced by an M2 ID.

To get the M2 ID and the Medicare Claims Submission Logon:

 

Send an email including the required information to IEMGroup@WellPoint.com.
