News Flash – Over the last year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has listened to your feedback about the Medicare online enrollment system, Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System. As a result, we’ve made upgrades in order to reduce data entry time and increase access to information. Providers and staff using internet-based PECOS will now be able to digitally sign and certify your application and to see more information such as whether a request for revalidation has been sent to you by your Medicare contractor. You will be able to switch from “Topic View” to “Fast Track View” to review all of your enrollment information in a single screen. Overall, the system will be easier for you to use. Learn more about PECOS at http://PECOS.CMS.hhs.gov and be on the look-out for more enhancements in the coming months!
