Physicians and practices that do not enroll or maintain their Medicare enrollment risk unnecessary delays in claims payment, cancellation of billing privileges, or even possible false claims liability. The whole process is complex and tricky, with lots of reporting requirements for issues that might otherwise seem insignificant. Here are different Medicare provider enrollment application forms:
Form CMS-855I: It is the most commonly used of the application forms. This 22-page form for individual practitioners cannot be processed without first obtaining an NPI number (National Provider Identifier) for which application instructions will be provided.
Form CMS-855B: For group practices and suppliers (with exception to certain DME suppliers) to enroll in or change current Medicare enrollment information.
Learn significant Form CMS-855I and Form CMS-855B information and tips from our expert presenter, Mark Kander. Avoid confusion regarding types of updated information accepted on the 855i and 855B for those who are already enrolled.
This session will give you a rundown on reasons for avoiding hard copy submission, links to electronic submission, rules that allow applicants to determine when individual practice applications are required in addition to group applications (CMS-855B). Rules that allow absence of Medicare enrollment and Medicare claims even though your services are rendered to Medicare beneficiaries and payment is collected from the patient directly.
