Mandatory Medicare revalidation is an important yet time-consuming task PracticeForces can help you take care of. Read this short, informative article and understand how we can help your practice for an affordbale one-off fee.
The Affordable Care Act Section 6401 (a) mandates all healthcare providers (and suppliers) who accept Medicare patients to revalidate their Medicare enrollment records based on new enrollment screening standards.
This requirement is only applicable to physicians who enrolled with Medicare before March 23, 2011. Physicians who enrolled with Medicare after this date won’t need to go through Medicare revalidation.
What to expect
Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) will officially notify each physician with the revalidation details and a request to start the credentialing process. Physicians cannot send their revalidation paperwork until they receive a notice from an MAC, at which point physicians have 60 days to respond.
Approximately 300,000 healthcare providers and suppliers have to revalidate their Medicare enrollment data, based on The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS). MACs will regularly send out notices from now to March 23, 2015, so the final deadline for the Medicare revalidation initiative is May 2015.
