Direct Data Entry (DDE) recertification during the COVID-19 pandemic

CMS requires MACs to recertify DDE users on an annual basis. CMS and First Coast understand the impact and disruption that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on providers and facilities and is therefore waiving the recertification process until further notice. Additional communication will be sent to notify providers on when the recertification process will be resuming.
Thank you for your continued care of our Medicare beneficiaries during this time.
