Attention all MSSP Members,

Please review the below information and tools from CMS on Medicare Revalidation.

 

The Shared Savings Program requires all ACO participants to be enrolled in Medicare (42 CFR § 425.20). Section 6401 (a) of the Affordable Care Act established a requirement for all enrolled ACO providers/suppliers to revalidate their Medicare enrollment information under new enrollment screening requirements. In order to streamline the revalidation process and reduce the ACO providers/suppliers burden, CMS implemented several revalidation processing improvements. We believe these tools are helpful for reminding your ACO providers/suppliers to revalidate timely and maintain their Medicare enrollment in order to minimize any adverse impact to their ACO participant status. The most efficient way for a provider or supplier to submit revalidation information is by using the Internet-based Provider Enrollment Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) on the CMS website https://pecos.cms.hhs.gov/pecos/login.do#headingLv1 . PECOS allows you to review information currently on file, update, and submit a revalidation via the Internet.

 

It is important for providers and suppliers to keep all of their contact information in PECOS up-to-date so the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) can contact them as needed. A listing of all currently enrolled providers/suppliers is available by using the Medicare Revalidation List https://data.cms.gov/revalidation . You can search for a provider/supplier by last name, first name, organization name, or by National Provider Identifier (NPI),or download a list of revalidation due dates. Those on the list due for revalidation will display a revalidation due date, all other providers/suppliers not up for revalidation will display a “TBD” (to be determined) in the due date field.

 

The revalidation due date will be posted up to six months in advance of the revalidation due date to provide sufficient notice and time for the ACO provider/supplier to comply. The revalidation due date list is refreshed once every two months on or around the first of the month and two months of due dates are appended at that time. For more information on ACO provider/supplier revalidation, please visit the CMS Revalidation webpage https://www.cms.gov/medicare/provider-enrollment-and-certification/medicareprovidersupenroll/revalidations.html  or have the provider/supplier contact their MAC.
