CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: 06/05/2009
All providers that submit claims to Medicare should have obtained their NPI number well over a year ago. The following discussion concerning the rules and uses of NPIs details the unique requirements that must be fulfilled by the billing and performing providers of diagnostic services. As explained below, these requirements recently changed as the result of a CMS transmittal. As is often the case when interacting with federally funded health care programs, the associated rules are always subject to change, often complex, and rarely understood after the first reading. Good luck.
