Physical Therapy Billing | Medicare Reimbursements at Risk
We recently identified practices that CMS is requiringÂ re-validationÂ of your NPI and Tax ID credentialing directly with CMS in order to receive medicare reimbursements. Â If you or your practice have notÂ re-validatedÂ your credentialing recently with CMS, they may require you toÂ re-validateÂ in the very near future. Â
According to Medicare, any practice that they have targeted should receive a letter notifying the practice that thisÂ re-validationÂ is required. The practice has 60 days from the post-mark date of the letter to submit a complete credentialing application. Â If this application is not submitted within this time frame, then Medicare will revoke your billing privileges and stop all reimbursements.
We strongly urge you not to wait for a letter, but to take action now by contacting CMS to see if your NPI number is on the list. Â To see if you are on any of these target lists, CLICK HERE!
