Medicare Credentialing Scenarios

Many providers think that because you’re participating in one state or under a different practice, that those credentials follow you to the next organization. No matter how simple the move or if you’re only working out of a new office next door to your current one, there is always some type of Medicare application that is needed before you can start seeing patients.

Here are some common scenarios where a Medicare enrollment specialist is helpful:

  1. Did you open a new practice location?  Have you notified Medicare so you can bill for the services?
  2. Did a physician leave your practice in the past?  Are you aware that Medicare must be notified of this change?
  3. Have you changed billing companies?  This new agency must be on file with Medicare.
  4. Did you have a change of ownership?  This must also be provided to Medicare.
  5. Are your claims being denied and you are not sure why?
  6. Are you opening an office and not sure where to start?
  7. Would you like to bill for DME but don’t have a supplier number

You may either use the PECOS external link to enroll online or mail a paper application form.  We strongly recommend you completing your application on PECOS.  The PECOS system manages, tracks, and validates enrollment data collected in both paper form and electronically via the internet. PECOS applications are processed much faster than paper applications and have less risk of error.  To find out more about PECOS, please refer to the PECOS FAQs external link

Retroactive Billing for Medicare

The short answer is Yes, but there are some specifics that you need to be aware of.  Retroactively billing Medicare is critical for most organizations as providers often start without having a Medicare number.  Your retroactive period begins once an application has been submitted but the application submitted must be accepted.

If the application is rejected due to incomplete data or because a provider doesn’t meet Medicare standards, you will lose the retroactive billing date and must start the application process over.  This is why it’s so critical to stay on top of the Medicare enrollment process and ensure your application is processed without any issues.  If mailing anything to Medicare, be sure to send certified and keep a copy of the tracking certificate.   If submitting through PECOS, make sure to get a tracking id and regularly check on the status.

Medicare Revalidation

  • How often do you need to revalidate Medicare?
    • As a participating Medicare provider, you are required to revalidate (renew) your enrollment record periodically to maintain Medicare billing privileges. This ensures compliance with the CMS guidelines.  As a rule, providers and suppliers are required to revalidate every five years.  However, DMEPOS (Part S) suppliers revalidate every three years. CMS also reserves the right to request off-cycle revalidations.
  • How do I revalidate Medicare? 
    • To complete the revalidation process, you can do it one of three ways.  The first method is through PECOS which is our preferred method.  When completing your PECOS enrollment revalidation, you will be required to upload all of your supporting documentation.  PECOS revalidation apps are processed much faster and have less room for error than the paper applications. The second way is to complete the required paper application and send in all of your supporting documents.  The final method is to contact us so we can help ensure your revalidation application is submitted accurately and in a timely manner.
  • What are the risks if I fail to revalidate?
    • Failure to revalidate your enrollment record will result in your Medicare provider number being deactivated.  This will obviously cause your claims to be denied and prevent your referring providers from sending you Medicare patients.
  • Is my enrollment record due for revalidation?
    • The easiest way to find out if you are due for revalidation is to use the revalidation lookup tool provided by CMS.  Due to COVID, some of the past due revalidations were given an extended grace period but if it says you are due, then you need to get working on it ASAP.  Here is a link to the tool: CMS Revalidation Lookup Tool

Completing Pecos Application

We highly recommend utilizing PECOS for all Medicare applications.  This is primarily due to the timeline associated with PECOS applications vs those completed on paper.  If you read the Medicare processing guidelines, you’ll find that the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) have twice as long to process paper applications vs any application completed using PECOS.  This is according to the rules laid out my CMS and is something you can reference if the application processing timeline extends beyond 90 days. 

We also prefer PECOS due to the error checking and address validation feature.  It audits your enrollment application to verify that you’ve completed all of the fields and further validates that you’re using the correct Group NPI.
