Reminder of PECOS deadline

As of October 4, Medicare home health agencies will be receiving warning messages from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in response to claims where the ordering physician is not enrolled in PECOS (Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System).

Agencies will still be paid for claims, but the warning message will indicate that such payments will be denied as of January 3, 2011.
