How long will it take for the National Supplier Clearinghouse (NSC) to process my license or accreditation update?
License Updates: The NSC processes documents in the order they are received. You may call the NSC at 866-238-9652 or visit their website at www.palmettogba.com/NSC for more information.
Accreditation Updates: Accreditation files are updated weekly based on information received from your accrediting organization. Please ensure your accrediting organization is providing correct information for your business.
Important: For bidding purposes, the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) will be checking the Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS) during the bid evaluation period to see if your license and accreditation was effective by the close of the bid window on September 18, 2019, not the date it was updated in PECOS. It is also important to remember that the state licensing and accreditation requirements must be maintained for each location on your bid throughout the bid evaluation period. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services cannot offer you a contract for a competition where you do not have a licensed and accredited location on your bid.
