Different providers of healthcare services or products must now use seven different CMS-855 forms, which are long, detailed, and sometimes confusing.

AudioEducator, a division of audio conference and corporate education leader ProEdTech, will host the live webinar “Medicare Enrollment Update for 2018” with healthcare consultant Duane C. Abbey on Tuesday, January 23, 2018, at 1:00 pm ET. This session will address the Medicare enrollment process through the use of the various CMS-855 forms.

Enrolling with the Medicare program involves various CMS-855 forms. The Medicare program uses a revalidation process to periodically require all healthcare providers to resubmit their 855 forms in order to assure that compliance is being maintained. Over time, the use and guidance for the enrollment process continues to morph, even though there is no change in guidance. This occurs through interpretations and clarifying guidance.

There are now seven different forms that must be used by different providers of healthcare services or products. These forms are long, detailed, and sometimes confusing. Not only must they be filed initially for a given provider, they must be maintained and updated as appropriate. Due to the increasing complexity of healthcare delivery systems, providers, such as integrated delivery systems or large multi-specialty clinics, may have to maintain hundreds of these forms. Join this session, where healthcare consultant Duane C. Abbey, Ph.D. will review the Medicare enrollment process through the use of the various CMS-855 forms.

This session--designed for claim-filing personnel, coding and billing personnel, compliance personnel, and financial personnel—will cover:

  • Medicare enrollment process through the use of various CMS-855 forms
  • Changes to the CMS-855 forms and/or changes in interpretations of the forms
