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.
