Created: 05/01/2015 | Updated:  

1.What do I need to know about Medicare and Medicaid Enrollment?

Upon hire, all eligible new providers are enrolled with Colorado Medicaid and Medicare as a rendering provider for CU Medicine. Enrollment applications are completed by CU Medicine on behalf of the provider. Signatures for these applications are obtained during New Provider Orientation. A provider’s effective date with Medicaid/Medicare is approximately 30 days prior to the date of signature on the application – so attendance to the Orientation session is crucial to enrollment.

2.What do I need to know about Out-of-State Medicaid Enrollment?
Because a claim is generally required for enrollment purposes, CU Medicine does not complete enrollment for Out-of-State Medicaid carriers until after treatment of the patient. (The process happens on the back-end.) Licensure for each state is not required, unless the provider is treating the patient in the state, or if telehealth services are provided in another state.


3. What do I need to know about CMS I&A and NPI?
The Identity & Access System was created to allow providers the capability of assigning users to work on their behalf for Medicare Enrollment, EhR registration, and NPI updates. CU Medicine requires that all new providers assign Shanna Smith as their NPI contact, as well as approve the connection request to CU Medicine. CMS I&A System.


4. What are the approved Medicare Specialty Codes?
