from American Dental Association
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced Oct. 31 that it is once again delaying the enforcement of the Medicare Part D prescriber enrollment requirement. The new deadline for providers to enroll is Jan. 1, 2019. CMS published a final rule in May 2014 and an interim final rule in May 2015 stating that prescribers must be enrolled or validly opted out in order for their written prescriptions to be covered under Part D.
