The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it will roll out an update to the Provider Enrollment Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) in the summer of 2023. PECOS is Medicare’s online system allowing users to securely submit and manage Medicare enrollment information.
Some of the updated features for PECOS 2.0 include:
- One application can create multiple enrollments
- Streamlined data entry
- Tailored application process
- Ability to manage group members more efficiently
- Revalidation reminders
- Rapid application reviews
- Real-time status tracking
While there will be many changes in the new system release, login information will remain the same and all current PECOS enrollment records will transition into PECOS 2.0.
While an exact date for the release has not yet been announced, CMS has created a video and FAQ to provide more information regarding PECOS 2.0. The Medicare Learning Network will also provide videos and resources to help prepare for the transition to PECOS 2.0.
