TIOPA offers enrollment in many Medicare Advantage plans, like BCBS Med Adv, Aetna Med Adv, UHC Medicare, and more. A requirement to enroll in these networks is a Medicare PTAN (Provider Transaction Access Number) issued by CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services). To make it easier for you, let TIOPA handle the enrollment. We have options for opening a new practice and joining an existing practice. This service is an additional fee and depends on the type of practice you are joining. We do not complete facility applications (855As). We complete 855Is, 855Rs, and 855Bs only. Revalidation is required every 5-years and varies by initial enrollment of medicare despite any changes. A revalidation fee is required per application and is not included with any other extra service fees for TIOPA to complete.

CMS uses three different websites, all use the same login credentials:

  • I&A – Identity & Access Management System – Create your account, complete staff updates, and make medicare connections to users
  • NPPES – National Plan and Provider Enumeration System – Enumerate NPIs and change location demographics as well as taxonomies
  • PECOS – Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System – Enrollment into medicare and application tracking
