No, remittances available on wellmark.com (equivalent to paper PCRs) have fewer fields populated than those sent electronically. The 835 format is design to auto-post to your accounts receivable system. Other remittances require manually posting and therefore are in a more ‘reader friendly' format.
As of 8/1/2013, paper PCRs will no longer be issued. The PCRs are available on wellmark.com for providers to access. However, the 835 will contain more complete information.
