2021 CEDI Trading Partner Recertification Process

The National Government Services, Inc. Medicare Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Common Electronic Data Interchange (CEDI) annual Trading Partner Recertification begins July 1, 2021 and concludes on December 31, 2021. CEDI Claims Portal (CCP) users will also be required to recertify. Trading Partners should complete the 2021 Trading Partner Recertification Form at their earliest convenience.

CEDI Trading Partners and CCP Users who have not recertified by December 31, 2021 will be deactivated the first week of January 2022.

Who Should Complete the Trading Partner Recertification Form

Recertification is the responsibility of the owner of the CEDI Trading Partner ID used to exchange electronic transactions with CEDI. Suppliers using a billing service or clearinghouse who do not have their own CEDI Trading Partner ID will not complete the Recertification Form. If you are not sure if you need to complete the Recertification Form, please contact your billing service/clearinghouse for clarification on your setup.

Software vendors, billing service, and clearinghouse contacts cannot complete the CEDI Recertification Form on behalf of their customer.

How to Complete the Trading Partner Recertification Form

The 2021 CEDI Recertification Form is located on the CEDI Web site at https://enroll.ngscedi.com/recertification.

The Recertification Form will be completed online and will not be faxed to CEDI. Once the form has been received and processed, CEDI will notify the Trading Partner via the e-mail address submitted on the Recertification Form.

Please be sure to list all individuals on the CEDI Recertification Form who will need access to the Trading Partner's restricted CEDI information. Only the authorized contacts provided on the CEDI Recertification Form are able to request a password change, reset a password, and have access to restricted information related to the Trading Partner ID. If additional contacts are needed, a new Recertification Form must be submitted to CEDI.

NOTE: Please be sure to list the owner of the Trading Partner ID as one of the authorized contacts. Software vendors, billing service, and clearinghouse contacts cannot be listed as authorized contacts for a supplier's Trading Partner ID.

Trading Partners do not need to wait for direct communication to complete the recertification form. The form is available on the CEDI Web site at https://enroll.ngscedi.com/recertification.

How to Complete the CEDI Claims Portal User Recertification Form

Trading Partners should list the CEDI Claims Portal (CCP) user as an authorized contact on their CEDI Trading Partner Recertification Form. CCP Users not listed as an authorized contact for the Trading Partner ID will be removed from the authorized contact list.

CCP Users listed as authorized contacts on the CEDI Trading Partner Recertification form will also be required to complete a CEDI Claims Portal User Recertification form. Once the CEDI Trading Partner Recertification form is processed, the CCP User will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to complete the CEDI Claims Portal User Recertification Process.

Checking Status of Recertification Forms

CEDI offers an online tool to check the status of your 2021 CEDI Trading Partner Recertification Form. To access the tool, select Recertification Status Check Tool on the CEDI Web site https://www.ngscedi.com under Self-Service Tools. Trading Partners will need to provide the e-mail address entered on the CEDI Recertification Form and either the Trading Partner ID or Request ID (RID) Number assigned to the form upon submission. An instruction guide for the Recertification Status Check Tool is available on the CEDI Web site.

CEDI requires Trading Partners to maintain accurate and up to date information. It is the responsibility of the Trading Partner to submit a CEDI Recertification Form with updated information if any information changes during the year.
