The Microsoft Excel files below include those providers who have elected to opt out of the Medicare program. If you've recently opted out of the Medicare Program it's possible that your name will not appear on the website until the next quarterly update.
The date in the far right hand column represents the date the provider chose to opt out of the Medicare Program. Providers who opt out cannot be employed by or work with other groups who have members who have not also chosen to opt out of the Medicare program. For more information about opting out of Medicare (also known as 'private contracting'), CMS Medicare Benefit Policy Manual (PDF, 1.22 MB), (Pub. 100-02), Chapter 15, Section 40 (in its entirety).
