Medicare Physicians and Non-Physician Practitioners Internet-Based Medicare Enrollment Is Available in 34 States

Now there's a better way for physicians and non-physician practitioners to enroll or make a change in their Medicare enrollment information. The Internet-based Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) will allow physicians and non-physician practitioners to enroll, make a change in their Medicare enrollment, view their Medicare enrollment information on file with Medicare, and check on the status of a Medicare enrollment application via the Internet.

 

Previously, CMS announced that Internet-based PECOS is available to physicians and non-physician practitioners in the District of Columbia and the following states:

  

Connecticut

Delaware

Hawaii

Idaho

Illinois

Indiana

Iowa

Kansas

Kentucky

Maryland

Michigan

Minnesota

Missouri

Nebraska

Nevada

New Jersey

New York

North Carolina

Ohio

Pennsylvania

South Carolina

Tennessee

West Virginia

Wisconsin

 

CMS has recently announced the expansion of the Internet-based PECOS for physicians and non-physician practitioners in the following states:

Alaska

Arizona

Florida

Montana

North Dakota

Oregon

South Dakota

Utah

Washington

Wyoming

 

 

Physicians and non-physician practitioners in the District of Columbia and the states shown above who wish to access Internet-based PECOS may go to: https://pecos.cms.hhs.gov 

 

CMS will expand the availability of Internet-based PECOS for physicians and non-physician practitioners to all states over the next two months. In addition, CMS will make Internet-based PECOS available next year to all providers and suppliers (except DMEPOS suppliers).
