Physicians or other eligible professionals not currently enrolled in PECOS should take the initiative to enroll sooner rather than later. There are three ways to verify that you have an enrollment record in PECOS:
- Check the Ordering Referring Report on the CMS website, available at http://www.cms.gov/MedicareProviderSupEnroll/06_MedicareOrderingandReferring.asp. If you are listed on that report, you have a current enrollment record in PECOS.
- Use Internet-based PECOS to look for your PECOS enrollment record, available at http://www.cms.gov/MedicareProviderSupEnroll/04_InternetbasedPECOS.asp. If no record is displayed, you do not have an enrollment record in PECOS.
- Contact your designated Medicare enrollment contractor and ask if you have an enrollment record in PECOS. Visit www.cms.gov/MedicareProviderSupEnroll for the "Medicare Fee-For-Service Contact Information" list (in the "Downloads” section).
If you are not yet in PECOS, the best way to submit your application is through internet-based PECOS. For more information, visit
