Information Available on Reporting Changes to Medicare Enrollment Information
(September 18, 2008)
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has posted three new Fact Sheets on the Medicare Provider Enrollment page
, on the CMS website.
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.
Links to each Fact Sheet are provided below:Reporting Responsibilities for Individual Physicians Enrolled in the Medicare Program
Reporting Responsibilities for Individual Non-Physician Practitioners Enrolled in the Medicare Program
