The internet-based Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS) facilitates the Medicare provider enrollment process by furnishing health care providers and suppliers with an easier, faster, and more efficient alternative to paper-based enrollment in the Medicare program. Registered users may use the system for initial enrollment as well as to change, reactivate, or voluntarily terminate an existing enrollment record. Users may also add, change, or terminate reassignment of Medicare benefits.
