PECOS Enrollment and Medicare Participation
What is PECOS?
PECOS is the Medicare Provider, Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System. PECOS is Medicare's enrollment and revalidation system and it is the primary source of information about verified Medicare professionals. A NPI number is necessary to register in PECOS. Providers must enroll in PECOS to avoid denied claims.
|Registered in PECOS?||Yes|
|PECOS PAC ID||4789775248|
|PECOS Enrollment ID||I20070813000476|
|Accepts Medicare Assignment?|| Yes "What does it mean "accepts medicare assignment"?|
When a provider accepts Medicare assignment, the provider agrees to be paid directly by Medicare and to accept the payment amount approved by Medicare. Additionally, the provider agrees to not bill patients for more than the Medicare deductible and coinsurance amounts.
A provider who doesn't accept assignment may charge you up to 15% over the Medicare-approved amount. This is known as the limiting charge. You may have to pay this amount, or it may be covered by another insurer.

NPI Validation Check Digit Calculation
|Step 1: Double the value of the alternate digits, beginning with the rightmost digit.|
|2 + 0 + 0 + 3 + 0 + 2 + 6 + 8 + 2 + 24 = 47|
|50 - 47 = 3||3|
The NPI number 1003023813 is valid because the calculated check digit 3 using the Luhn validation algorithm matches the last digit of the original NPI number.
