Quarterly Provider Update

The Quarterly Provider Update is a comprehensive resource published by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the first business day of each quarter.  It is a listing of all nonregulatory changes to Medicare including transmittals, manual changes, and any other instructions that could affect providers.  Regulations and instructions published in the previous quarter are also included in the update.  The purpose of the Quarterly Provider Update is to:

  • Inform providers about new developments in the Medicare program;
  • Assist providers in understanding CMS programs and complying with Medicare regulations and instructions;
  • Ensure that providers have time to react and prepare for new requirements;
  • Announce new or changing Medicare requirements on a predictable schedule; and
  • Communicate the specific days that CMS business will be published in the Federal Register.

To receive notification when regulations and program instructions are added throughout the quarter, visit the CMS Quarterly Provider Updates Email UpdatesExternal Website Web page to sign up for the Quarterly Provider Update (electronic mailing list).

We encourage you to bookmark the Quarterly Provider UpdateExternal Website website and visit it often for this valuable information.
