Adding a provider to a group

Q: What applications do we complete to add a provider to our group?
A: The CMS-855I may be used to add a provider who is initially enrolling or making changes to that provider’s personal information. The CMS-855R is used to reassign the individual’s benefits to the group. This information can also be captured in internet-based PECOS. For more information on the paper enrollment forms and internet-based PECOS, please review the page Understanding which CMS-855 form to complete.
