On November 30, 2012, CMS announced the 2013 application fee for those providers initially enrolling in Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP or revalidating an enrollment or adding a new location. This application fee applies to those providers submitting an 855A application form, which is the form that health centers use to enroll in the Medicare program. The 2013 fee will be $532.00, effective January 1, 2013. This is a $9.00 increase over the 2012 fee.
This application fee has been in effect since 2011 and providers must submit this fee with their application. For more information, please see the CMS announcement and please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions about this fee or the Medicare, Medicaid or CHIP enrollment process.
