Commercial Repayment Center Portal

Commercial Repayment Center Portal

The Commercial Repayment Center Portal (CRCP) is a web-based tool designed to provide Employers, Insurers, and Third Party Administrators with a way to manage their Group Health Plan (GHP) recovery activities electronically.

CMS has made available a curriculum of computer-based training (CBT) courses for the CRCP. These courses provide in-depth training on use of the CRCP. You can access or download these CBTs from the Downloads section near the bottom of this page. Please see the CRCP Curriculum document for a complete listing of the courses and their descriptions. If you have any questions or feedback on this material, please click the Training Feedback link.

CRCP Features & Benefits:

The CRCP provides you with the following features and related benefits:

  • Search for open Demand Letters and view beneficiaries/cases associated to a particular demand
  • Associate/add beneficiaries/cases to a defense
  • Upload and submit defense documentation
  • Track case information, including financial status, defense status and correspondence history

The nature of the portal allows for faster processing of submissions and gives users the ability to manage and track cases nearly in real time. Any data collected through the portal is then sent to the Commercial Repayment Center (CRC) to aid in the resolution of GHP recovery efforts.

The CRCP can be accessed using the following CRCP Application link https://www.cob.cms.hhs.gov/CRCP/ However, registration must occur before access to the CRCP is permitted.
