Q: If a provider/supplier establishes a new practice, opens a new facility, or closes/changes the address of an existing practice/facility, how long does the provider/supplier have to inform Medicare of the “reportable event”? How should the change be reported?
A: Any change in practice or facility location (e.g., establish new location, move existing location, close existing location) address must be reported to the provider/supplier’s MAC no later than 30 days after the “reportable event” occurred.
Providers and suppliers should utilize the internet-based PECOS
to update their Medicare enrollment record. Registered users
may use the system for initial enrollment as well as to change, reactivate, or voluntarily terminate an existing enrollment record.
