Medicare enrollment has declined drastically because there are simply many inaccurate or incomplete applications. This is because the CMS-855I and CMS-855R forms are extremely complex and can be difficult to understand, even for professionals.
Many negative outcomes are directly tied to the amount of delayed Medicare enrollment applications. And it is the applicants who suffer the most. This results in everything from delayed reimbursements, to not having coverage when you need it the most. It can also lead to providers simply not having the information they need to give proper care to their patients. Simply put, applicants are not able to go through the Medicare credentialing process and they’re often left without anything.
