Revalidation is a complete and thorough re-verification of the information contained in your Medicare enrollment record to ensure it is still accurate and compliant with Medicare regulations. Simply put, revalidation is re-enrollment. All providers and suppliers are required to revalidate their enrollment information every five years.
First Coast Service Options must receive your enrollment application within 60 days of the revalidation request.
Use the revalidation request tool -- confirm if you have been sent a request to revalidate and to which provider the request applies.
Take advantage of this helpful checklist to ensure that you have the information you need to successfully complete your revalidation:
Revalidation primarily consists of completing an enrollment application as you did when you first enrolled in Medicare. The process was developed to confirm the accuracy of your Medicare enrollment record currently on file.
Expedite the revalidation process by using internet-based PECOS. This online process is the easiest way to revalidate.
