The CCD+ format is a NACHA Automated Clearing House (ACH) corporate payment format with a single, 80-character addendum record capability.

Contact your financial institution if you would like to receive this information. Fees may be associated with EFT payments. Consult with your financial institution for specific rates.
The ERA replaces the paper version of the Remittance Advice (RA). WPS delivers 5010 835 versions of all remittance files that are compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). You can receive your ERA directly from WPS or through your clearinghouse.
Fees may be associated with ERA transactions. Check with your clearinghouse for specific rates.
