FAQ

What is revalidation and why must I revalidate?

In accordance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Section 6401, all new and existing providers must be reevaluated under the new screening guidelines in Section 6028 by no later than March 23, 2015. Medicare requires all enrolled providers & suppliers to revalidate enrollment information every five years (reference 42 CFR 424.57(e)). To ensure compliance with these requirements, existing regulations at 42 CFR 424.515(d) provide that CMS is permitted to conduct off-cycle revalidations for certain program integrity purposes.  For more details refer to http://www.cms.gov/MLNMattersArticles/downloads/MM7350.pdf.
