"I would never have an office go without it,” she says. “It’s not worth not joining for the price. I totally swear by it. It is fantastic. I would take anything else, and I would tell people to stuff it. I’ve read these things from beginning to end, and we always look forward to the next one out."
As part of the Patient Care and Affordable Care Act (section 6401 a), all new and existing Medicare providers must be reevaluated under new screening criteria that went into effect March 25, 2011. All enrolled providers and suppliers must revalidate their enrollment information every five years to ensure that Medicare has the most current information on file.
Revalidation letters will be sent on a regular basis until March 23, 2013. Phase one is in effect, and the first group of providers and suppliers have already received their letters
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has now posted the list, containing details such as the name and national provider identifier (NPI) of all providers and suppliers who were sent the letter. CMS would be updating this on a monthly basis.
Note: Providers and suppliers should not jump the gun in revalidating their enrolment, acting only when they receive the letter. However, those who are on the list, but have not received the letter, should contact their MAC.
