Attention Enrollees in the IVIG Demonstration

December 31, 2020

Earlier Enrollment Dates for IVIG Demonstration

Effective March 31, CMS has instructed that the enrollment dates for the IVIG demonstration will be changed to allow for earlier enrollment. Applications received from the first day through the fifteenth of the month, that are complete and meet the requirements for the IVIG demonstration, will be processed with an enrollment effective date of the first the following month. Applications received from the sixteenth day to the end of the month, will have an enrollment effective date of the 15 of the following month.

Examples

Enrollment application received on April 10. The beneficiary will be enrolled with an effective date of May 1. (This is not a change).

Enrollment application received on April 17. The beneficiary will be enrolled with an effective date of May 15. (In the past, the enrollment date would have been June 1).

This process will continue until we stop enrolling beneficiaries due to the end of this program in 2020, which will be November 15, or until we have enrolled 4,000 beneficiaries, whichever occurs first.

Information for Beneficiaries

Applications for participation in the IVIG Demonstration will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis until Medicare reaches or projects it will reach the statutory limit on funding and/or enrollment (4,000 beneficiaries). At this time, applications are still being received.

Please note that in order to be enrolled in the IVIG Demonstration, a beneficiary must:

  • Be covered under Medicare Fee-For-Service and enrolled in Part B,
  • Have a diagnosis of Primary Immune Deficiency Disease (PIDD), and
  • Not be currently covered under a home health episode of care.

IVIG Demonstration Enrollment Application

All beneficiaries must complete and submit a signed application in order to be considered for this demonstration. The blank application may be printed and completed manually or filled in online and printed before signing. Once completed and signed by the beneficiary, the application must also be signed by the beneficiary's treating physician:

Your version of Adobe Acrobat may offer a feature to "digitally sign" the application document. Users should not use this feature as it does not properly qualify as a signature. Once completed, the application must be printed and signed with an ink pen.
