Multiple hospitals FAQ

Q: I practice at multiple hospitals; however, I do not have a physical office location at any of the hospitals. Mail sent to these hospitals is frequently lost. How will I know if I have received a revalidation letter?
A: You may identify your revalidation due date online at https://data.cms.gov/revalidation external link. You can also determine if a letter has been mailed by accessing the Confirm a Revalidation Request lookup on the First Coast Service Options (First Coast) provider website.
First Coast also recommends that you notify the hospital administrator or office staff to hold/deliver the revalidation letter for you.
Let them know how they can easily identify the revalidation letter:
Medicare revalidation letter
The revalidation request letter will be enclosed within a yellow envelope
The phrases Open Immediately and Urgent Request will be stamped on the yellow envelope
The return address will list First Coast Service Options, Inc. (First Coast)
If you have more than one address listed in your file (e.g., special payments, pay to address), your revalidation request letter may be sent to multiple addresses. Revalidation request letters are sent to multiple addresses listed within a provider’s file to increase the chances that he or she will receive the revalidation request letter.
