The only way to get paid from Medicare is to accurately complete PECOS online enrollment and reassignment with forms CMS 855I and 855R – for both existing and new Medicare providers.
Okay, that’s not completely true. You can still submit paper applications to Medicare, but they’re seriously time consuming, and mistakes on paper applications can delay your enrollments by months.
