Medicare Update

On June 1, 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid announced yet another delay of the enforcement date regarding the Part D prescriber enrollment requirement. The implementation date of this new rule which requires dentists who treat or prescribe for Medicare beneficiaries to enroll or opt-out of Medicare will now be June 1, 2016.

The ADA is continuing its work in seeking a legislative repeal of this requirement; however, dentists are encouraged to begin the enrollment or opt-out process as it is unclear how long this process will take as well as whether it will be successful.

Read more about the enrollment requirements for Part D prescribers.

To learn more about this requirement in person, attend the “Medicare Regulations and Your Practice” lecture on Friday, June 12th from 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. (Hyatt Grand FG-Olympic Tower) at this year’s PNDC. Register today for PNDC 2015!
