What is PECOS?

Print PDF
PECOS is a database of physicians at Medicare.

When a physician prescribes an item, such as home medical equipment or services, the PECOS system is checked to ensure the physician is on file. If the physician is not on file, the claim will be denied regardless of medical condition or coverage.

If your physician is not in the PECOS system you may not receive the items ordered for you! If you have existing rental equipment the claims will deny as of July, 6 2010.

Registration for the physician only takes a few minutes. However, most doctors are unaware of the program and it's deadline.
This program affects ALL medical equipment companies and may also impact other home health services.

Ask your doctor if he or she has registered with Medicare's PECOS today. If not send them here!
