Critical Medicare Revalidation in Progress
Medicare continues to execute the revalidation process according to CMS guidelines implemented in March 2011. Providers who have not completed a revalidation since March of 2011 will be required to do so between now and March 23, 2015.
As part of this initiative, Medicare is requiring providers to submit a Revalidation Application to confirm their continued affiliation with each Tax ID. However, a Revalidation Application can only be submitted after the provider receives a Revalidation Letter from CMS; therefore, Providers are unable to preemptively submit Revalidation Applications.
These letters may be sent to the provider’s facility address, the provider’s payee address or we may receive them here at ARM. The actual letter will be green and come in a yellow envelope.
If you receive a Revalidation Letter from CMS:
It is critical that you forward it to ARM immediately upon receipt. ARM will prepare a Revalidation Application for each provider but we must have your Revalidation Letter from CMS.
If you receive a Revalidation Application from ARM:
It is critical that you immediately complete the form and return it to ARM with any requested documentation.
Medicare allows an extremely limited timeframe for this process – 60 days from the date of the Revalidation Letter. Delays will result in the revocation of your billing privileges and a loss of reimbursement.
