Major Improvements to Medicare Online Enrollment System

CMS listened to your feedback about the Medicare online enrollment system – Internet-based PECOS. CMS has made improvements to the electronic signature process to allow an Authorized Official (AO) or Delegated Official (DO) of an organization to e-sign your application within an authenticated Internet-based PECOS session.

The AO or DO of an organization that is listed in the Individual Control section of an enrollment will be permitted to e-sign the applicable certification and/or authorization statements and CMS 588 (Electronic Funds Transfer) within Internet-based PECOS instead of being directed to a separate PECOS E-signature Application. However, if the AO or DO is not the individual completing the application or if they do not currently have access to PECOS, they will continue to receive an email directing them to the separate PECOS E-signature Application.

To see a sample of the email the AO or DO will receiveand get helpful tips, see “Complete Signing Your Medicare Enrollment Application Electronically” in the April 25 edition of the e-News.
