In a recent Weekly Update article, we reported on the implementation of the sleep specialty code for CMS. The code will be available via the Medicare Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) in May. However, revisions to the paper enrollment form will require additional time. CMS has provided the AASM with information on the paper enrollment form updates.
The enrollment form 855S, the enrollment form for Medicare Durable Medical Equipment Prosthetics Orthotics and Supplies (DMEPOS) Suppliers, will be updated in Oct 2012. Enrollment forms 855B, for Clinics and Group Practices, as well as 855I, for Physicians and Non-Physician Practitioners, will be updated in Jan 2013.
