Reassignment of Benefits

Any time a physical therapist changes jobs, it is the responsibility of that therapist and the previous employer to cancel the established Medicare reassignment of benefits.

In this article I will review a very simple process the physical therapist should follow to ensure all previous reassignments of benefits are cancelled.

Step 1 – Log into your PECOS account

Click here to access the homepage of PECOS

Once you enter your user name and password you will be taken to a screen where you will click the My Associates button.

Step 2 – Scroll down to your name

Once you see your name and NPI you will click the view enrollments button on the right side of the screen.

Step 3 – Scroll down to Existing enrollments

Once you see your existing enrollments you will click on the View/Manage Reassignments button to see what active reassignments exist for your Medicare PTAN Provider Number.

Step 4 – You will see your open reassignments.

In the image below you can see one reassignment is listed as APPROVED with an effective date of 09/01/2011. Then below that there is a DEACTIVATED reassignment with an End Date of 07/11/2011.

To cancel a physical therapist’s reassignment click the Manage Reassignments button at the bottom right of the screen.
