National Provider ID (NPI)

A provider's National Provider ID number (NPI) is required on insurance claims.

Enter a Provider's NPI on the Edit Provider window, National Provider ID field.

Enter a Facility NPI by creating a provider profile for the facility:

  • Enter the facility name as the Last Name.
  • Enter the facility's NPI as the National Provider ID.
  • Check the 'Not a Person' box.

To set the facility as the default practice or clinic billing provider (and thus use the facility NPI), select the facility as the default insurance billing provider in Practice or Clinic Setup.
