special medicare provider enrollment

open door forum

friday, june 29, 2007

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm, eastern daylight time (edt)

(conference call only)

the centers for medicare & medicaid services (cms) will hold a special open door forum (odf) to discuss useful tips that providers and suppliers can use to facilitate enrollment into the medicare program.

a medicare enrollment application (cms-855) is required to be completed by all health care providers/suppliers who wish to enroll in the medicare program. cms is responsible for ensuring that all enrolled medicare providers/suppliers are qualified to provide appropriate health care services as required by federal statute and regulations. to fulfill these goals, cms must collect and verify specific information on each provider/supplier who wishes to bill the medicare program.

during this discussion, cms will provide: (1) an overview of the 2006 medicare enrollment applications, and (2) useful tips on how providers can facilitate enrollment into the medicare program. afterwards, there will be an open discussion for staff to listen to comments regarding the medicare enrollment process.
