CMS to require use of new 855R Medicare enrollment form


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 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.
