National Supplier Clearinghouse Revalidation Process for DMEPOS Suppliers
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires that all DMEPOS suppliers with Medicare billing privileges re-enroll with the Medicare program every three years through the National Supplier Clearinghouse (NSC). Suppliers will be prompted to revalidate, formerly re-enroll, for billing privileges using the Internet-based PECOS system. CMS encourages suppliers to register now to use Internet-Based PECOS in preparation for the receipt of the letter instructing suppliers when revalidation is necessary.
Upon receipt of the revalidation letter, suppliers are required to go online and respond to the request within 30 days. If the NSC does not receive the completed revalidation packet, the supplier's billing privileges are subject to normal filing rules including revocation or inactivation.
To learn more about Internet-based PECOS or to register, visit the CMS website at http://www.cms.gov/MedicareProviderSupEnroll. For more information, contact NSC Customer Service during regular operating hours, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET at 1-866-238-9652.
