PMRNC:
Richard, I disagree..

A NON covered HIPAA entity does not even need an NPI at all. Under HIPAA you are only considered covered entity if you electronically transmit health information in connection with a HIPAA standard transaction or even use a Business Associate (billing company, clearinghouse, etc)

As per their first post: 
--- Quote ---If I am taking cash and only doing out of network billing, giving my patients receipts that they can submit to their insurance company, is there anything I need to do about notifying insurance companies of my group 2 NPI?  Is it complicated to maintain a group 2 NPI?

RichardP:
I guess I wasn't clear that I was adding to what you said, not trying to replace it.

My comments were generally about how NPI Numbers work.  I did not mean to imply that the OP needed NPI Numbers if she does no electronic billing.

If she does work for another clinic that does bill electronically, I believe the OP will need a Type 1 NPI Number.  If that clinic does not bill electronically, then she won't need one.
