Medicare delays enrollment requirements for Part D Drug Prescribers


Medicare has announced a delay to the enrollment requirements for providers who prescribe Part D drugs to their Medicare patients. The new enrollment deadline is January 1, 2016.

The original deadline for providers to submit their enrollment forms (855i, 855o, or opt out affidavits) was June 1st, 2015. A week after the original deadline, Medicare update their website with the following language:

"Any physician or other eligible professional who prescribes Part D drugs must either enroll in the Medicare program or opt out in order to prescribe drugs to their patients with Part D prescription drug benefit plans. Medicare Part D may no longer cover drugs that are prescribed by physicians or other eligible professionals who are neither validly enrolled, nor opted out of Medicare. All prescribers should enroll before January 1, 2016 to allow for the processing of applications and to ensure enrollees get their prescriptions."
