For the Week of July 28, 2014

Question:

How does PECOS differ from the Medicare paper enrollment process?

Answer:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services established the Internet-based Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) as an alternative to the paper (CMS-855) enrollment process. Internet-based PECOS allow physicians, non-physician practitioners and provider and supplier organizations to enroll, make a change in their Medicare enrollment, view their Medicare enrollment information on file with Medicare, or check on status of a Medicare enrollment application via the Internet.
