Are you a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant? Do you see Medicare patients? If so, you’ll want to make sure you are listed in PECOS – Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System.
CMS continues to urge physicians and non-physician practitioners who are enrolled in Medicare but who have not updated their Medicare enrollment record since November 2003 to update their enrollment record now. If these physicians and non-physician practitioners have no changes to their enrollment data, they need to submit an initial enrollment application which will establish a current enrollment record in PECOS.
