All providers and suppliers who enrolled in the Medicare program prior to Friday, March 25, 2011, will be required to submit their enrollment information so they can be revalidated under new risk screening criteria required by the Affordable Care Act (section 6401a). Providers/suppliers who enrolled on or after Friday, March 25, 2011 have already been subject to this screening, and need not revalidate at this time.
Do NOT submit your revalidation until you are notified to do so by your MAC. You will receive a notice to revalidate between now and March 2013.
This will allow MACs to process revalidations in a timely fashion and allow providers to take advantage of innovative technologies and streamlined enrollment processes now under development. Updates will be shared with the provider community as these efforts progress.
