Frequently Asked Questions
What is required for a relocation of the health care provider?
The health care provider shall complete the IDPH “Facility Information Change Form” prior to the relocation and submit to the Department. If the Health Care Provider is Medicare certified then the provider shall also complete Medicare Provider enrollment form A and submit to their Medicare fiscal intermediary.
What is the process to add a offsite location under the main provider Medicare certification number?
Refer to the Medicare Regulations under Chapter 2 of the State Operations Manual.
An extension location is defined at 42 CFR 485.703 as “a location or site from which a rehabilitation agency provides services within a portion of the total geographic area served by the primary site. The extension location is part of the agency. The extension location should be located sufficiently close to share administration, supervision, and services in a manner that renders it unnecessary for the extension location to independently meet the conditions of participation as a rehabilitation agency.” The provider shall complete the “Extension Site Form” found under “Forms” and mail it to the Department for review and recommendation to The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services for approval.
