Q: If a provider/supplier establishes a new practice, opens a new facility, or closes/changes the address of an existing practice/facility, how long does the provider/supplier have to inform Medicare of the “reportable event”? How should the change be reported?
A: Any change in practice or facility location (e.g., establish new location, move existing location, close existing location) address must be reported to the provider/supplier’s Medicare administrative contractor (MAC) no later than 30 days after the “reportable event” occurred.
Providers and suppliers should utilize the Internet-based Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS) external link to update their Medicare enrollment record. Registered users may use the system for initial enrollment as well as to change, reactivate, or voluntarily terminate an existing enrollment record.
When to complete a CMS-460
The CMS-460 may only be completed by new physicians, practitioners, and suppliers looking to become participating providers during initial enrollment and during annual participation open enrollment.
When to complete an EFT (CMS-588)
An EFT (CMS-588) is to be used to enroll in electronic payments. All providers enrolling in Medicare are required to submit an EFT in order to receive payments.
