August 9, 2023 – Special Outage Notification

Attention Electronic File Transfer (EFT) users. This serves as notification that due to the migration of the Baltimore Data Center (BDC) to a new Data Center (Ashburn, VA), all CMS EFT protocols for file exchanges will be unavailable during the following upcoming dates. Customer processes will not be able to connect until EFT is back online.  EFT users should not attempt to submit files during this time. Any files that fail should be retransmitted. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
