Address change notification
Q: If a provider/supplier establishes a new practice, opens a new facility, or closes/changes the address of an existing practice/facility, how long does the provider/supplier have to inform Medicare of the “reportable event”? How should the change be reported?
A: Any change in practice or facility location (e.g., establish new location, move existing location, close existing location) address must be reported to the provider/supplier’s Medicare administrative contractor (MAC) no later than 30 days after the “reportable event” occurred.
Providers and suppliers should utilize the Internet-based Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS) to update their Medicare enrollment record. Registered users may use the system for initial enrollment as well as to change, reactivate, or voluntarily terminate an existing enrollment record.
