PACE Easy Print Guide
A Guide to using Medicare Remit Easy Print (MREP) with PACE.

However, since it was designed for providers submitting Medicare claims, some of the features designed for Medicare do not apply to the PACE application. Even though some minor functionality is not available, providers transitioning from a paper remittance advice to an electronic R/A will immediately notice some of the advantages of the electronic file over a paper document.
