[Important Announcement] Updated 855S Application Released Copy

Published in Member Communities on March 20, 2024

For those businesses that have been patiently waiting for the 855S application to be updated with the Lymphedema Compression Treatment items as a product being offered, it is finally here.

While the electronic version in PECOS was updated a while back, there are suppliers that still use the hardcopy of the 855S and can now update the products and services being offered with the LCT items. 

During the waiting process, instructions were to notify the accreditation organization and then update the enrollment contractor once the 855S was released.

If you are only adding the LCT items (S04) as a product being offered, the first step is section 1A which then instructs to go to section 1B:

Section1

The second step is section 1B, selecting products and services. Then following the sections listed in the adjacent column for completion include Section 2, where the new product category is listed.

Section B

Section 2 Part 4

Once all the indicated sections have been completed, suppliers then submit to the appropriate provider enrollment contractor. This is also a good time to communicate with the accreditation organization about the updated application.

You can submit any additional updates with the application, if necessary. Just be sure to follow the instructions listed.

Any questions can be submitted to rcs@vgm.com.
