Upcoming CMS Conference Call Focuses on Medicare Enrollment

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will be holding a conference call focusing on Medicare enrollment for all Fee-for-Service (FFS) health care professionals on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm. The call will provide updates on revalidation, billing for ordered or referred services and the PECOS system. A question and answer session will be held at the end of the call.

For almost a year, CMS has been revalidating the enrollment of participating health care professionals enrolled in Medicare prior to March 25, 2011 as required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Since the revalidation process is being phased in and scheduled for completion by 2015 this call will be useful to find out the latest information about the revalidation effort, including how improvements to the PECOS system make it easier to submit revalidated enrollment information electronically. As the completion date nears the medical community should learn what to expect and how to prepare for this process. 

CMS experts also will explain the requirements for billing for services that were ordered or referred by a physician or other eligible professional. Keep in mind, CMS will turn on the automated edits that will deny claims that do not meet these requirements.

Registration for the conference call closes at 12:00 p.m. on October 10. Registration is now open.
