Please email ModernizingMedicare@cms.hhs.gov with the subject line "Provider Specific File Feedback" with your comments or suggestions. The team will only respond to messages related to the Provider Specific File.
We look forward to hearing from you!
To export specific historic PSF data, please navigate to the Provider Data Service (PDS) Site and utilize the user-friendly filtering options to narrow the data.
