Currently, NCTracks compares the managing employees (ME) listed on an organization's initial enrollment application against the managing employees listed in the Medicare Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS). If managing employees listed on the application does not match those listed in PECOS, the application is denied.
Effective February 26, 2023, NCTracks will no longer compare the managing employees listed on organization initial enrollment applications to the managing employees listed in PECOS. Applications will no longer be denied due to managing employees on the application not matching those listed in PECOS.
NOTE: This change does not impact owners. Owners listed on organization initial enrollment application will still require matching against the owner listed in the Medicare Provider Enrollment Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) to avoid application denial.
The following attestation will no longer be required and will be removed from applications:
"Managing agents and employees entered on this application match what was reported to the provider's state business registration entity, licensure board and Medicare. NC Medicaid will compare the owners and managing employees entered on this application with the owners and managing employees listed on the provider's Medicare enrollment record when applicable."
