The ACA, or Affordable Care Act, changed a lot of things for Medicare providers and among those was the level of reporting required for Medicare disbursements and collection of bad debt. These requirements put in place to prevent fraud come with a load of reporting and data collection every 3-5 years depending on the regulations. Medicare Revalidation is a part of those requirements and the window of time for submission runs up to January of 2018. As a provider it’s important to follow your due dates closely and get your Medicare Revalidation completed.
What is Medicare Revalidation?
When the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was first introduced in 2010, all providers participating in Medicare had go through an enrollment process. The Medicare Revalidation process is basically just an updated enrollment that is required to continue as a Medicare provider. Once you have been contacted as a provider it is your responsibility to report all practice locations and groups where you are a Medicare provider. Keeping up with this information and submitting everything required will save you extra time on the phone with CMS and keep your practice going with providing care while receiving Medicare disbursements.
