If you are a Medicare provider, you know that you must periodically revalidate your enrollment information with Medicare. This process can be a bit complicated, and we frequently receive revalidation questions from our clients.
In an effort to make it easier for doctors to enroll in Medicare and Medicaid, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is launching a pilot program designed to streamline the screening process.
Although an on-site visit by CMS is nothing to worry about for legitimate health care businesses that are fully compliant with Medicare requirements, you should still be on your toes to ensure that nothing goes wrong.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced a change in the requirement that providers and suppliers contracting with Medicare Advantage (MA) plans (Medicare Part C), and those who prescribe drugs covered by Medicare Part D programs, must be enrolled in Medicare.
For Medicare and Medicaid, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires that, once you are initially enrolled, you must report certain changes – reportable events – to your Medicare administrative coordinator within 30 days.
