ALERT: PECOS Enrollment Required to Claim Incentive Payments

Many eligible physicians may not be aware that in order to apply for incentive payments, they must be enrolled in PECOS, the Medicare Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System. Separate enrollment processes exist for individual practitioners vs. provider/supplier organizations.

A similar process will apply for those applying under Medicaid; however, states may add additional steps.

Go to https://pecos.cms.hhs.gov and register if you intend to participate in the CMS EHR incentive program.
