Is there a way to locate my medicare region in Sammy?
Yes! If your office has downloaded fee schedules in past years, there is a record of who, when and what fee schedule and region was selected in your Update log.
To access the update log go to the main Sammy menu.
2. View Update Log
3. This will open the Electronic Update Log (this may take a moment or two to load)
4. Once this has loaded, click on the yellow Status bar. This will sort the column in alphabetical order.

6. In the update column, locate the mcrxx##.cnv - This is the update that was process
mcr=medicare fee, xx= STATE selected , ## is the Region selected.
If you have not downloaded the medicare fee schedules from Sammy before, and you are not sure what region you should select you can search Medicare Locality by State
