CMS Announces Final Rule for Documentation Requirements

April 27, 2012

On April 27, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services published a final rule implementing several provisions of the Affordable Care Act. The rule requires providers and suppliers that qualify for a National Provider Identifier to include their NPI on all applications to enroll in the Medicaid or Medicare programs and all claims for payment submitted under the programs.


It also requires physicians and other professionals who can order and certify covered items and services for Medicare beneficiaries to be enrolled in Medicare. The rule also includes document retention requirements.
