Important Information – Compliments of ReedSmith

For decades, radiology groups and other providers and suppliers had to jump through all the hoops required for Medicare enrollment when billing for services performed by radiologists via teleradiology technology from different states. They had to gain those billing rights by making use of a special form to accompany and update their Medicare enrollment applications to bill for the services of their employed and contracted radiologists who reassigned billing rights to the group, using the trusty CMS 855R form. But no longer. In a move to bring efficiency to the enrollment process, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has streamlined its processes so that reassignment now takes place electronically using the Internet-based Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) or the updated and consolidated CMS-855I enrollment application form.  Click here for full article.
