As of August 1, 2015, phone numbers for previous state QIOs will no longer be forwarding to KEPRO's phone lines as has occurred over the last year. Please make sure that all of your beneficiary notices have been updated with KEPRO's appropriate area phone number. Should the notice not contain the correct number and the call is late, the skilled services notice (Notice of Medicare Non-coverage) will be deemed invalid.

If you are having difficulty accessing our toll-free numbers, please use the local numbers when contacting KEPRO: 813-280-8256 for Areas 2 and 4, and 216-447-9604 for Area 3.
