Site Verifications – Would Your Practice Location Pass?

As part of the overhaul of the enrollment rules in June 2006, CMS adopted new regulations under 42 C.F.R. § 424.510(d)(8) authorizing on-site reviews to determine if an enrolled provider or supplier is “operational” to furnish Medicare covered items or services and whether or not the provider or supplier is in compliance with the Medicare enrollment requirements. These site verifications are in addition to on-site surveys performed for determining compliance with the conditions of participation for Medicare-certified providers and suppliers.
