Section 6401 (a) of the Affordable Care Act established a requirement for all enrolled providers and suppliers to resubmit and recertify their Medicare enrollment information under new enrollment screening criteria. CMS completed its initial round of revalidations (cycle 1) in March 2015 and in March, 2016 resumed regular revalidation cycles (cycle 2) with several process improvements. Cycle 2 revalidation applies to those providers and suppliers that are currently and actively enrolled with Medicare.
CMS has established due dates by which a provider or supplier’s revalidation application must reach the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) in order for them to remain in compliance with Medicare’s provider enrollment requirements. Due dates are posted on the CMS Medicare Revalidation Lookup Tool at: http://go.cms.gov/MedicareRevalidation.
