CMS Announces $523 Medicare, Medicaid, & CHIP Enrollment Application Fee for 2012

CMS has announced that the 2012 application fee for institutional providers (excluding physicians and nonphysician practitioners) enrolling in Medicare, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) will be $523 ñ up from $505 in 2011. As authorized under CMS’s February 2011 final Medicare/Medicaid/CHIP provider screening rule, institutional providers must pay the application fee when initially enrolling in the Medicare or Medicaid programs or CHIP; revalidating their Medicare, Medicaid or CHIP enrollment; or adding a new Medicare practice location (unless a hardship exemption applies).
