CMS has proposed a rule to implement additional provider enrollment regulations directed at providers and suppliers that challenge to circumvent Medicare’s enrollment requirements. For the Disclosure of Affiliations, CMS would require health care providers and suppliers to report affiliations with entities and individuals that:
- Have uncollected debt to Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP
- Have been or are subject to a payment suspension under a federal health care program or subject to an Office of Inspector General (OIG) exclusion
