New Medicare Enrollment Requirements Will Burden Providers and Suppliers

On September 22, 2010, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) issued proposed rules that will dramatically change the enrollment process for Medicare providers and suppliers, including new enrollment following a change of ownership.  The proposed rules are intended to carry out various provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA”), particularly section 6401, which requires that HHS develop procedures to screen Medicare providers for risk of fraud and abuse. The rules represent a shift in CMS’ anti-fraud strategy from one that pays first and asks questions later to one designed to prevent fraud before it starts.  These rules will impact many tax-exempt organizations, especially health care organizations.  For more information regarding these proposed rules, please click here.
