Information on Medicare Enrollment Rule

Medicare Webinar

Please note: Enrollment rules for Medicare Part D and Part C will be changing as of June 15, 2018. This page is in the process of being updated, but currently does not reflect the new changes. Please see the May 1, 2018 ADA News article "CMS finalizes rule rescinding Parts C, D enrollment requirements" for more information, and check back here for updates which shall be posted by or before June 15, 2018. 

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published a new rule which provides that Medicare Part D plans will not cover prescriptions unless the prescriber has enrolled in Medicare or opted out.

Enforcement will begin on January 1, 2019.

The American Dental Association developed member resources to help dentists better understand how to enroll in and opt out of Medicare.
