Why Do I Need to Do Medicare Revalidation and Enrollment?
In order to have Medicare billing privileges, physicians are required to have an active contract with their local Medicare contractor. They need to maintain active PECOS account as well for efficient communication and faster contracting. Medicare also requires providers to revalidate their contracts every five years. If provider fails to revalidate, he/she will lose Medicare billing privilege and have to start a new application process.
Do Physicians Need to be Enrolled with Mediciad?
Providers who want to participate with state healthcare programs must be contracted with state specific Medicaid. If a provider is not contracted, no claim for that provider will receive payment. Private medical practices will enroll with traditional fee-for-service with Medicaid. Providers will need to enroll through their local Medicaid portals. This is the best way to communicate with provider services. State Medicaid will also require periodic revalidation. Timing for revalidation is state specific. Requirements are also state specific.
