Medicare Requires Revalidation of Physician Provider Enrollment Data

Medicare is requiring all physician providers who were enrolled prior to March 25, 2011 to revalidate their enrollment data. Between now and March 2013, Medicare fiscal intermediaries will be sending notices to these physician providers, requesting that they revalidate their provider enrollment information contained in the PECOS system. Upon receipt of the revalidation request, physician providers will have 60 days from the date of the letter to submit completed enrollment forms. Failure to submit the enrollment forms as requested may result in the deactivation of your Medicare billing privileges. Providers can now utilize the Internet-based PECOS (Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System at to revalidate their provider information.

Physician providers who fail to revalidate their data timely could suffer financial hardship due to the interuption in Medicare payments until the revalidations is completed.

    After further review, I am of the opinion that only the high risk providers (DME) will actuall be required to revalidate. I guess we will have to wait and see.
