Webinar: Medicare’s New Enrollment and Program Integrity Rules—What You Need to Know NOW
Register Here Overview: On Sept. 5, the Centers
Overview: On Sept. 5, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a final rule with comment period (Final Rule) entitled, “Medicare, Medicaid, and Children’s Health Insurance Programs; Program Integrity Enhancements to the Provider Enrollment Process.” This new Final Rule significantly expands the enrollment requirements for the Medicare, Medicaid and CHIP programs, while expanding the ability of Medicare, Medicaid and CHIP programs to revoke the enrollment of current providers and suppliers, and denying applicants to any or all of these programs.
The Final Rule flows from a proposed rule that was released several years ago in spring of 2016. This Rule is an important development that will necessitate forethought and planning in order to implement the new requirements in your day-to day-operations and to ensure that your organization abides by the new requirements. The Final Rule is scheduled to take effect on Nov. 4, and is a precursor to additional developments and modifications to the enrollment process and enrollment applications that will continue to flow from CMS, state Medicaid agencies and the CHIP program in the upcoming years.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
- Explain the Final Rule and its requirements.
- Identify key areas of the Final Rule that will require additional planning and forethought necessary for implementation.
- Discuss practical examples in an effort to better understand the Final Rule and its impacts.
