CMS Announces New 855O Application Form for Providers & Suppliers Who Want to Order and Refer Only

The US Office of Management and Budget recently approved changes to the Medicare Provider-Supplier Enrollment Applications (CMS-855) in order to update them from the 2008 versions, as well as the new CMS-855O application form used for the sole purpose of enrolling to order and refer items and/or services to Medicare beneficiaries.  The revised and new forms are now available on the CMS Provider-Supplier website here.

Providers and suppliers enrolling for the sole purpose to order and refer are required to begin using the new CMS-855O form immediately.  Providers and suppliers using the other CMS-855 forms to enroll in Medicare are encouraged to begin using the revised forms, though may continue to use the old forms through October 2011.
