Wanted to pass along to everyone this most up-to-date information concerning Medicare revalidation; we all knew this was coming but this is a good resource to check your revalidation status. Your regional MAC’s have been sending letters to all providers stating that you must “revalidate” your Medicare enrollment between 2011 and 2015. Providers can only apply for the revalidation AFTER being contacted by the MAC to do so. Below is more information and a link to all providers that have officially been sent a revalidation notice through January 2012.
“Section 6401 (a) of the Affordable Care Act established a requirement for all enrolled providers and suppliers to revalidate their enrollment information under new enrollment screening criteria. This revalidation effort applies to those providers and suppliers that were enrolled prior to March 25, 2011. Newly enrolled providers and suppliers that submitted their enrollment applications to CMS on or after March 25, 2011, are not impacted. Between now and March 23, 2015, MACs will send out notices on a regular basis to begin the revalidation process for each provider and supplier. Providers and suppliers must wait to submit the revalidation only after being asked by their MAC to do so. Please note that 42 CFR 424.515(d) provides CMS the authority to conduct these off-cycle revalidations”
