Reminder: Start Using the Revised CMS-855S Enrollment Application

DMEPOS suppliers are reminded that the CMS-855S enrollment application was recently revised to capture additional information pertinent for enrollment processing. Suppliers should use the CMS-855S version (07/11) if enrolling in Medicare for the first time, reporting changes to existing enrollment, if you have been asked to revalidate your existing enrollment, and other limited circumstances.

The 07/09 version of the CMS-855S will only be accepted through December 31, 2011. Any information received on the obsolete form after this point will be returned to the supplier resulting in a delay to your enrollment activities.
