Medicare Enrollment

You can be enrolled in Medicare as either a participating or a nonparticipating provider.  

If you are sure that you don’t want to see any  patients under Medicare for a period of two years, you can opt out of Medicare entirely and you may then enter into private contracts with Medicare beneficiaries.
