CMS Pushes Back PECOS Deadline

Medicare has delayed the deadline for physicians to enroll in the Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) until Jan. 3, 2011. The deadline had been April 5 of this year.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) says PECOS will help reduce fraud and abuse and cut down on paperwork. Organized medicine sought more time for physicians to enroll.
