When to revalidate FAQ

Q: How will I know when it’s time for me to revalidate and how long do I have to submit my revalidation application? Should I submit my revalidation application now?
A: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) established due dates for revalidation will be posted online at external link. The revalidation applications can be submitted within seven months prior to this due date. If there is no date listed and displays “TBD” (to be determined), then you are not required to submit your revalidation yet.
First Coast Service Options Inc. (First Coast) will also be mailing revalidation request letters-- enclosed within yellow envelopes -- to affected providers within two to three months prior to the provider’s revalidation due date.
Note: First Coast will not be utilizing email to notify providers of revalidation requests.
Provider Enrollment Revalidation Envelope
You should not submit your enrollment application (e.g., CMS-855I, CMS-855B, CMS-855A) until you see a due date listed online or have received your revalidation request letter from First Coast. Revalidations received more than seven months in advance of the due date will be returned.
Note: If First Coast does not receive your revalidation application, your Medicare payments will be withheld, and your billing privileges will be deactivated. You will be required to submit your enrollment application to reactivate your billing privileges. Deactivations will take place approximately 60-75 days after the due date.
