Group NPI Setup

Version 14.19

Group NPI Setup

OP handles Practice (or Corporate or Group) NPI logic in a similar way to Tax ID. The software looks to multiple fields to get the information needed on claims. These situations only occur when the Insurance Payer's Billing Loop (Utilities > Manage Practice > Insurance Payers > select payer > Claims/Routing tab) is set to Practice NPI Only.  

  1. OP will look first for the Practice NPI in the Practices/Locations table > NPID (Corporate) field. The NPID Override on Claims field provides options for where the NPID (Corporate) number will be applied on claims. There are two options:
  • Line 32 only (service location)
  • Line 32 + Line 33 (service and billing)
  1. OP will look second to the Practice NPI field in the Practice Info tab of the Staff/Provider Directory.
Warning: If you have any questions regarding the setup of Group NPIs in OP, contact your Implementation Specialist or OP's Support Team.
