While checking the FMC route for the rnp departure from situation to the rnp approach to runway 8 at jnu; the legs page had us crossing ssr at or above 5200 ft. I believe this is below the MEA for that route. We departed off runway 11 at situation with the transition over the ssr VOR for the rnp to runway 8 at jnu. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following information: reporter stated that this rnp type of procedure is air carrier specific. His air carrier has instituted a temporary fix for this situation already and a permanent fix is in the works.
