Physicians have until April for PECOS re-enrollment

American Medical Association, January 7, 2010

Doctors who order Medicare services or refer patients for certain Medicare services now have until April 5 to determine whether they are up to date in the program's Provider, Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System, known as PECOS. CMS was originally planning on stopping payment to providers who weren't in compliance at the first of this year, but several physician organizations asked for more time.
