esMD for Review Contractors
The Electronic Submission of Medical Documentation (esMD) system allows Medicare providers and suppliers to exchange medical documentation and responses with Medicare review contractors (RCs). esMD enables the electronic submission of information, replacing paper documents where possible and reducing the burden on providers and suppliers.

Once the required credentials are approved and the infrastructure related activities are complete, the RC Client needs to be installed after reviewing the Review Contractor (RC) Client Java User Guide and Installation Handbook (PDF) or the Review Contractor Client Microsoft .NET User Guide and Installation Handbook (PDF).
