2018 CEDI Trading Partner Recertification Process

The National Government Services, Inc. Medicare Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Common Electronic Data Interchange (CEDI) annual Trading Partner Recertification will begin on July 1, 2018 and conclude on December 31, 2018.

CEDI Trading Partners who have not recertified by December 31, 2018 will be deactivated the first week of January 2019. 

Who Should Complete the 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 Recertification Form

The 2018 CEDI Recertification Form is located on the CEDI Web site https://www.ngscedi.com under CEDI Recertification Form.

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.

Checking Status of Recertification Forms

CEDI offers an online tool to check the status of your 2018 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 when it was submitted. An instruction guide for the Recertification Status Check Tool is available on the CEDI Web site.

CEDI requires that Trading Partner information remain accurate.  It is the responsibility of the Trading Partner to submit a new CEDI Recertification Form with updated information if any information changes during the year.

Questions regarding completing the recertification, updating contacts, or checking status of the CEDI Recertification Form can be directed to the CEDI Help Desk at ngs.cedihelpdesk@anthem.com or at 866-311-9184.
