Corporation changing name

Physicians' C-corporation is changing name, I assume EIN number stays, but Medicare reimbursements require a 575CP letter with new name and old EIN, how to get this letter?

I think you first need to change the name with the IRS (see first link), then call the IRS for a new 575CP letter (see second link).

However, you may consider suggesting the physicians keep the old name, and add a "DBA" name that they can use.  That could possibly simplify things.
