Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA) enrollment forms are now available for use in the WPS Government Health Administrators Portal. WPS EDI will be accepting both paper and online ERA enrollment forms for a period of 30 days. After the initial 30-day period has lapsed, effective Oct. 21, 2020, WPS EDI will only be accepting ERA enrollments submitted online via the WPS Government Health Administrators Portal.
Due to the volume of ERAs and EFT enrollments WPS receives, processing could take up to 30 days after WPS receives an enrollment. Our dedicated team works diligently to process enrollments in the order they are received. We appreciate your patience and will continue to provide the best service possible to meet the demanding needs of our providers.
Effective immediately, the discontinuation of the WPS Bulletin Board System (BBS) and the MOVEit Gateway transition are on HOLD while we focus on improvements for the new system.

WPS EDI Technical Alert: Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2021
WPS EDI experienced issues with both our WPS Community Manager (including Gateway Express) and Secure-EDI servers this morning that impacted our trading partners' ability to connect to the systems and exchange files. This issue affected both real-time and batch file submission. The servers/services have been restarted and connectivity is restored. The long-term plan to mitigate similar issues in the future includes upgrades for WPS Community Manager (tentatively scheduled for late spring/early summer) and Secure-EDI/MOVEit (rescheduled for Jan. 30).
Attention: Medicare GHA J5N, J5A, J8A, J8B
WPS EDI has an unscheduled production delay that started about 2:45 a.m. CT on Tuesday, October 13, 2020. This affected trading partners for Medicare lines of business. This impacts all connectivity’s through BBS, Secure-edi and Gateway EDI. Transactions including 999s and 277CAs are now on hold. We will provide an update as soon as we can. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Attention: Trading Partners
An issue was discovered following the October systems release installed Friday, Oct. 2, at 5 p.m. EDI claim files larger than 1.6 MB are being rejected by the Combined Common Edits/Enhancements Module (CCEM). This rejection prevents 277CA generation, and the 837-claim file will not get loaded to our backend system for adjudication. This issue has been reported to the Shared System Maintainer; there is no ETA for resolution at this time.
Please do not resend any files that did not generate a 277CA after 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2. Those files will be processed with the original receipt date after the issue has been resolved.
Until the issue has been fixed, please send files that are less than 1.6 MB in size to receive a 277CA acknowledgement.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
