Yes, you will need to revalidate if you received a notice and have been assigned a revalidation due date after 1/31/2022.

In accordance with Section 6401 (a) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, all new and existing providers must be reevaluated under the new screening guidelines. Medicare requires all enrolled providers and suppliers to revalidate their enrollment information every five years (reference 42 CFR Section 424.515). To ensure compliance with these requirements, existing regulations at CFR 42 Section 424.515(d) provide that the CMS is permitted to conduct off-cycle revalidations for certain program integrity purposes. Upon the CMS request to revalidate its enrollment, the provider/supplier has 60 days from the post mark date of this letter to submit complete enrollment information.
