Managing Multiple eService Accounts Just Got Easier with Account Linking!
Palmetto GBA is excited to announce the highly anticipated eService enhancement- Account Linking! No longer will providers need a separate login for each PTAN and NPI combination. Palmetto GBA now gives users the ability to link their previously assigned eServices user IDs under one default ID. Getting started is simple! Users should log into eServices with the user ID that they wish to designate as their default login ID. This is the user ID that will be used to access the linked accounts. Once the user has successfully logged into eServices, they will select the My Account Tab and then access the Account Linking sub-tab. This will allow the provider to choose the accounts they wish to link.

Billing for Influenza: New CPT Code 90674
The American Medical Association issued a new Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code for influenza vaccine Flucelvax, CPT 90674, effective August 1, 2016 for Medicare claims. However, Medicare claims processing systems will not be able to accept the new code until January 1, 2017. If you bill institutional claims, note that code CPT 90674 will be implemented on February 20, 2 017. Claims may either be held or you can check with your MAC for this information and other interim billing instructions.
