From Trailblazer – Submitting Medical Records on CD/DVD

Trailblazer is making at least a small move to kill a few less trees this year – they are accepting supporting documentation on a CD or DVD disk.  There are some formatting requirements (see the link below to the jobaid for the procedure from Trailblazer), so pay attention to the requirements. The text of the notice is after the jump.
