Provider certification is valid for three years. After three years, providers must submit a renewal application to maintain their certification. The certification end date is located in the final certification approval letter and can be reviewed online in the provider’s Provider Services Management current certifications. Each provider is responsible for tracking this date and submitting all documents required for certification renewal.
Providers can start their renewal application 90 days before the certification end date. Providers whose certifications expire will have a gap in their certification span. Providers are not allowed to provide or bill for services once their certification has expired or during certification gaps.
