Welcome to the Palmetto GBA Railroad Medicare PTAN LookUp and Request tool.
This tool allows you to access your existing Provider Transaction Access Number (PTAN) or to request a new PTAN.
 
If you are new to Railroad Medicare, you can request a PTAN if you are already enrolled with your local Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) and have a claim to submit for a Railroad Medicare patient.


If you recently enrolled with your local MAC, please wait 14 business days from the date you receive your local MAC PTAN before using this tool.

Request new PTANs for individual providers only (physician, non-physician practitioner, ambulance, laboratory, ambulatory surgical center, etc.)

Please do not attempt to request a new PTAN for a group/practice. A group PTAN will be created when an individual PTAN is assigned to the first group member.
