Where is the best place to store the OHS/Medicare Authentication file?

Previous topic Next topic  

Once you have received approval to use the OHS/Medicare electronic claim system you will connect to the Medicare web site and download an Authentication File. This file is used as part of the on-line security system for Medicare.

We strongly recommend that you copy this file into your ..\EClaims folder.

Why? Locating the authentication file in the ..\EClaims folder will reduce the amount of hunting and clicking you need to do when you connect to Medicare to up- and download claims and response files. It is also a folder which is accessible to all authorised users of the computer, unlike My Documents and therefore should not be affected by user-rights issues
