National Supplier Clearinghouse Acknowledges Certain Issues in PECOS Conversion

Posted on November 4, 2011 in Long-Term Care, Home Health & Hospice

The National Supplier Clearinghouse (“NSC”) has recently indicated it is aware that numerous Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (“DMEPOS”) suppliers are having issues with viewing and/or submitting revalidation information through the web-based Provider Enrollment Chain Ownership System (“PECOS”). NSC has indicated that the majority of these issues are due to information discrepancies when the supplier files were converted to PECOS. NCS is requiring suppliers who are having these issues to submit a paper revalidation. Once the paper revalidations are processed, NSC expects these conversion issues to be resolved and future web-based actions should be accessible.
