The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently finalized a new 855R form, which is used to reassign an individual physician's Medicare billing privileges to an organization. The revised form will become available on the CMS.gov websiteon Dec. 29, 2014 and can be found by searching "855." Once available, Medicare administrative contractors may accept both the current and revised versions of the form through May 31, 2015, after which only the revised CMS 855R application will be accepted. The online Medicare Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) will be updated to include the revised Medicare reassignment information.
