Provider Enrollment Screening Enhancements Medicare Provider Records
The Affordable Care Act requires that the Agency for Health Care Administration (Agency) conduct pre-and post-enrollment screenings to ensure that providers initially meet and continue to meet the enrollment criteria for their provider type.
As an enhancement to the provider screening process, the Agency will soon implement automated checks to compare Florida Medicaid provider application data against Medicare's Provider Enrollment Chain of Ownership System (PECOS) database for those providers who are enrolled in both Medicare and Florida Medicaid.
All providers currently enrolled in Medicare are encouraged to review the information on their Medicare PECOS provider file, and to promptly complete any necessary updates, to ensure that Florida Medicaid receives current and accurate information. Items that will be checked include the provider name, tax ID, National Provider ID, ownership, date of birth, and the service address.
The Agency will implement the automated checks as part of the Florida Medicaid provider enrollment screening process in early 2018. Look for future alerts related to this and other enhancements.
