Claim Form Rule: Adding or Removing Facility Payer Assigned Provider ID

  • Updated

What claim change is needed?

Add or remove the provider's unique payer-assigned ID to a UB-04 or CMS-1500 claim.

The Payer-Assigned Provider ID is a unique identification number assigned to a provider from a payer that the payer may require on claims. 

Certain billing circumstances call for the payer-assigned provider ID to be more flexible than in the Practice Admin > Payer tab. There is another location for this ID per facility in the Practice Admin > Facilities tab.
