These Fact Sheets list the types of changes that enrolled physicians, non-physician practitioners, and group practices are required to report to Medicare within specific times of occurrence. Non-reporting of changes may adversely affect claims processing, claims payment amounts, and the eligibility of the physician, non-physician practitioner, or group practice to participate in Medicare. The Fact Sheets indicate the Medicare provider enrollment forms that must be used to report the changes, and include information on where to go for assistance.
