Our team also conducts provider site visits designed to ensure that individuals and businesses applying for new Medicare provider numbers maintain an appropriate facility in which to conduct business.
Verification entails obtaining geo-tagged digital photographs of the site and verifying information regarding the provider’s facility, staffing, equipment, hours of operation, and other information based on CMS’s direction.
The purpose of these visits is to ensure that only legitimate businesses are granted Medicare provider numbers and to see that Medicare beneficiaries receive treatment in appropriately equipped and staffed facilities.
Our services include:
- Photographing the exterior of the facility and available signage indicating business name and hours of operation
- Completing the appropriate CMS Site Checklist describing the facility, staffing, equipment, and business record keeping
- Uploading all photographs and information into the Automated Inspections Reporting System
