Thread: Billing for NP's

  1. #1

    Default Billing for NP's

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a situation where Medicare has deactivated my NP's number due to the fact that her NPI number has not been used for billing in one year. Instead on the billing the MD's number has always been used. I have two questions: If Medicare deactivates the NPI and PTAN number is the NPI deactivated for all insurances since it the National Identifier?
    Second: When should the NPs NPI be put in the rendering spot on the 1500 form? ONly when the doctor is not in the building or whenever the NP actually sees the patient?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Default NP

    So your NP strictly sees follow up patients with no change in care??
