Enrollment Risks and Consequences — Steps in the Enrollment Process, Filing and Effective Date Considerations, Deactivation & More

Dennis Grindle and Gretchin Heckenlively

The Medicare enrollment process is more than completing some boxes on a form or in electronic data fields in the national PECOS database. This session highlights the compliance risks associated with completing the forms, the organizational structure of the provider or supplier, the disclosure requirements initially and ongoing, the impact on billing and cash flow, what resources are available to assist you through the process, the penalties for falsifying information and certification statements being attested to, just to name a few, so you avoid mistakes that can freeze payments for services you’ve already performed and succeed the first time you file your initial enrollment. Topics covered in this session include:

  • Timeframes for submission of CMS-855 forms
  • Reimbursement effective date dependencies for certified providers/suppliers
  • Effective date of billing privileges for physician/groups/NPPs

10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

Provider-Based & §603 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 – Payment Reductions for Certain Off-Campus Hospital Departments

Dennis Grindle

Planning to relocate hospital outpatient departments? Be careful! With the passage of §603 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 on November 2, 2015, relocations of hospital outpatient departments from one address to another or the establishment of new off-campus provider-based hospital outpatient departments on or after November 2, 2015 could mean unintended payment reductions to your hospital. This was effective January 1, 2017 and continues through 2018. It’s determined by how you complete your Medicare enrollments. Remember, Medicare enrollment forms can impact how a provider/supplier is ultimately paid for its services.

5:30 p.m.
