We are billing a DME claim for equipment that is being delivered to an assisted living facility. They told me they do NOT have an NPI number because all of their residents are invoiced directly, they bill NO insurance companies. How can I submit the claim? Is the facility considered their home?

Hi Bruce,
You need the doctor who ordered the equipment’s NPI number not the assisted living facility’s. You can use the assisted living facility’s address for the patient’s address
