- Update Your Routing Code Value (GS03)!
On January 5, 2015, the current routing codes submitted electronically will no longer be effective. To comply with Medicare front-end edit standards, the EDI routing code value is being changed to match the Payer ID for JF Medicare Part A and JF Medicare Part B. JE routing code values are already the same as the Payer ID and will remain unchanged. The routing code is the value used in GS03 of an 837 X12 transaction.
