I think you mean form 855I and it's the Medicare Change/Enrollment for an individual practice. It's only one of a few important things you'll need to do with each client you setup. The 855I will alert Medicare of the change and/or addition of the billing agent (you).

Thanks, I feel so lost. I've been doing A/R reimbursement for about 2 years, and billing for a few months, so I have a lot to learn (on the billing side).. I'm just in the being stages of researching and I'm going to take a billing and coding course. I have a year before I begin to start my business. I'm sure by then I will have all the information I need. Thanks so much for your help.

Also, I've been searching for the requirements for a homebased medical billing business in the state of TX, and I haven't found anything. I have called the Secretary of state office and the county clerk's office and they didn't have a clue. Do you know where I can find this information?

Sorry but I don't know what to tell you.  I would have thought the county clerk's office would have been the place to start.
