Provider Enrollment: Resumed Revalidation Activities
Attention: Provider Enrollment and Credentialing Departments
Activities have resumed with revalidation due dates starting with 1/31/2022. Don’t wait to revalidate if CMS assigned a 2022 due date.
Revalidate before your due date to avoid a hold on your Medicare payments and deactivation of your Medicare billing privileges.
There are several ways to find your revalidation due date:
- Medicare Revalidation List Tool
- Revalidation notice mailed by National Government Services
- Mailed in yellow envelope
- Sample Revalidation Letter
- Internet-Based Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS)
- Sign in with user ID and password.
IMPORTANT: If a 2022 revalidation due date has not been assigned or if the due date is TBD, all unsolicited revalidation applications will be returned.
Revalidate Medicare enrollment information either electronically by using the Internet Based Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) or by submitting the appropriate CMS-855 paper application which is on our Forms page which under RESOURCES at the top of the NGS website.
