NPI level 2?
« on: October 11, 2012, 03:13:46 PM »
I have a client that is starting a drug treatment facility. It will be
 made up of multiple providers and they will be using different
 facility's to treat the patients. Everything will be billed under the
 drug treatment program. What level NPI number would they need to apply
 for? Level 1 or 2? They each have their own individual NPI numbers and
 the locations that they currently operate have their own NPI numbers as
 well.  The "facility" won't have a general location.
 
Will they have to apply for several NPI's for the different locations?
 
Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, I am drawing a blank at the
 moment (in need of coffee).  I am thinking the level is "2".

HI Queen,

Based on how I am understanding your query, you have a client who is starting a group with multiple providers billing under one tax id. If this is so, yes, the group will need to be set up under a group NPI (Type 2). Hope this helps.
