Verify that the action applies to all beneficiaries for whom the organization or individual
is payee before proceeding. Then take the following actions:
Use the Make Note screen found in MS INTRANETERPS 015.012 and GN 015.013B. to indicate
reasons for the payee closure and any other important information about the event.
Management completes the appropriate termination actions. If this is a FFS payee closing,
first update the Fee for Service screen by adding the Stop Date and the Reason Stopped
to preserve the Fee for Service screen data MS INTRANETERPS 014.008. Then take action
to terminate the payee in eRPS.
Terminate Organization/Institution screen per MS INTRANETERPS 014.004; and
List of Active Beneficiaries screen when you have completed the changes for all beneficiaries
per MS INTRANETERPS 013.002.
If the payee is subject to expanded monitoring, annotate the Representative Payee
Monitoring Application (RPMA) here. For information regarding the RPMA process, see GN 00605.406A.3.
REMINDER: You will no longer be able to select this organization or individual to be payee
without a new face-to-face application. Terminating a payee relationship in eRPS does
not terminate the payee relationship on the MBR/SSR. It is the FO’s responsibility
to take action to place the beneficiary in direct pay or select a new payee by creating
a new representative payee application through the eRPS system so that the LAF code
and payee data on the MBR or SSR updates accordingly.
