60-Day Comment Period for New Medicare and Medicaid Enrollment Rules Ends November 16, 2010

Do not lose this opportunity to submit comments to the proposed changes in the Medicare and Medicaid enrollment rules, whether submitted individually or in conjunction with professional or trade associations.

Enrollment screening procedures would be increasing more rigorous based upon the provider’s or supplier’s placement into the “limited,” “moderate,” or “high” risk category.

For an overview of the enrollment safeguard provisions in the proposed regulations, check out my article “Increased Scrutiny to Obtain and Maintain Medicare and Medicaid Enrollment – Time to Comment is Now” written for the Ober Payment Matters publication.
