Level of Program:

Physicians, nonphysician practitioners, and other Part B suppliers must enroll in the Medicare program to be eligible to receive Medicare payment for covered services provided to Medicare beneficiaries.

Provider enrollment is the first step in the billing cycle. For someone just starting to perform enrollment services, the process can be confusing and frightening because of the numerous forms, terms, and regulations that must be followed. So much can happen along the way, and a single misstep may put providers’ payments in jeopardy. What’s more, until a provider is properly enrolled with an effective date of participation, all claims must be written off or held. This can be a scary and high-stakes reality for someone new to the enrollment process.

Avoid becoming the next victim of faulty Medicare provider enrollment. Join this webinar and receive the basics to jump-start your mastery of this topic.
