Implementation of Pay.gov Application Fee Collection Process through PECOS
INDUSTRY NEWS TAGS: CMS
This MLN Special Edition Article is intended for all providers and suppliers, (except physicians and non-physician practitioners who are not required to pay an application fee), who are initially enrolling in Medicare, adding a practice location, or revalidating their enrollment information, and do so by submitting paper Medicare enrollment applications or the associated Internet-based PECOS.
Currently, providers or suppliers use Pay.gov to make Medicare application fee payments electronically. This article announces a change to this website address to access Pay.gov on the Internet.
The changes outlined have no effect on the Pay.gov payment collection process. Provider and suppliers will continue to make payment for the application fees to Pay.gov on the Internet. CMS is simply revising the way providers access Pay.gov to improve the efficiency of the application fee payment, collection, and accounting process.
