Access Medicare participation information and tips on enrollment.
There are three Medicare participation options:
- Participating (often referred to as "PAR")
- Non-participating (referred to as "non-PAR")
- Private contracting
The American Medical Association (AMA) updated its Medicare Participation Kit to help physicians evaluate their participation options and choose which status is right for their practice. Physicians have the option of modifying their status with Medicare during their open enrollment period each year.
