Data in the system is updated daily with NPPES and some changes made may not be reflected for several hours until all information in synced.
Medicare providers begin a new enrollment session at https://pecos.cms.hhs.gov/pecos/login.do#headingLv1 with a NPPES or PECOS login. Both types included a user ID and password to access.
Electronic submission is secure when using the official portal from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services through the Department of Health and Human Services.
To reset a lost or forgotten password and user ID, there are two tool found below in our resources section that you can use. Limited phone assistance is available by calling the CMS EUS help desk at 1-866-484-8049 and speaking a web specialist.
Help for providers covers the PECOS login access, application, navigation, printing issues, and account profile updates.
All medical providers registering for an account or supplier servicing must receive a NPI before enrolling. A NPI is a National Provider Identifier that takes twenty minutes to be issued from the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System.
Videos cover the use of several topics in your account including starting enrollment, CMS change of provider information, Medicare reevaluation, deactivation, reactivation, and practice additions.
The Paperwork Reduction Act issued in 1995 places a electronic format in the PECOS system rather than a paper copy on file. A variety of forms are shown to help with filing electronically.
There is a difference between a provider and a supplier as describe by the Medicare contractor regulations.
A provider is one who cares for patients. Examples include hospitals, hospices, home health, and rehab facilities. A supplier is one who furnishes services or good used in the care of patients. Examples include physical therapists, rural health clinics, and equipment rental companies.
It is important to note your account type before using your PECOS login to access the system.
