All suppliers who enrolled before March 25, 2011, are being revalidated by Medicare to ensure they meet the program’s revised standards. Government affairs expert Devon Barnard advises O&P facilities to prepare for revalidation by ensuring their information on file with CMS is up to date; enrolling in the Internet-based Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership system; and making sure all supporting documentation is in order. It’s also a good idea to review the facility’s policies and procedures and become familiar with relevant supplier standards.
