855. Check with PECOS to see if you can do it online. Your provider may have access to PECOS.

Only the 855I needs to be filled-out for individuals or an 855B for a group, etc and so on.

The 855R is only for reassignment or removing reassignment of benefits. There is no where on that form to tell them about a billing company.
Don't worry. Be happy.

Anytime there is an add or change of billing agency it has to be done within 90 days I think. It's section 1B of 855. It is a change in information. Section B has place to check off if add/change billing agency.
