Medicare Fee For Service NPI Contingency Plan

April 25, 2007


Effective May 23, 2007, Medicare fee for services (FFS) is establishing a contingency plan for implementing the National Provider Identifier (NPI). This plan includes the stipulation that, as soon as Medicare considers the number of claims submitted with an NPI for primary providers (billing, pay-to, and rendering providers) is sufficient, Medicare will begin rejecting claims without an NPI for primary providers. The plan could be implemented as early as July 1, 2007.
