For providers and suppliers that utilize the Medicare enrollment application forms, in lieu of Internet PECOS, it is important to confirm the current version of each form prior to its completion and submission. This can be particularly important when completing forms in advance of a pending transaction or the opening of a new business, especially when delays affect timing for submitting the application packet.
