Online Medicare Enrollment: Internet-based PECOS

Now there's a better way for physicians and non-physician practitioners to enroll or make a change in their Medicare enrollment information. The Internet-based Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) will allow physicians and non-physician practitioners to enroll, make a change in their Medicare enrollment, or view their Medicare enrollment information on file with Medicare. 

Internet-based PECOS is a scenario-driven application process with front-end editing capabilities and built-in help screens. The scenario-driven application process will ensure that physicians and non-physician practitioners complete and submit only the information necessary to enroll or make a change in their Medicare enrollment record.

There are three basic steps to completing an enrollment action using Internet-based PECOS. Physicians and non-physician practitioners must: 

  1. Have an NPPES User ID and password to use Internet-based PECOS
    1. For security reasons, physicians and non-physician practitioners should change passwords periodically, at least once a year. For information on how to change a password, go to the NPPES Application Help page and select the 'Reset Password Page' under the NPPES Application help page.
  2. Go to Internet-based PECOS and complete, review, and submit the electronic enrollment application via Internet-based PECOS

While CMS encourages physicians and non-physician practitioners to print and retain a copy of the enrollment record for their records, physicians and non-physician practitioners should only mail supporting documents to Palmetto GBA and must utilize the e-signature process or upload the certification statement via PECOS upload functionality. Contractors can no longer accept mailed paper certification statements per Change Request 10845.
