    Default Ptan #???

    AAPC: Back to School
    We just started a new office and I don't know where to apply for a PTAN #.
    Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.

    The PTAN is the term Medicare uses for the Doctor's Medicare provider number. You would need to contract with Medicare in order to obtain a PTAN. Hope this helps.
