What it is:
Box 2i is used to indicate the appropriate qualifier and identifying number in the shaded area. There will always be providers who do not have an NPI and will need to report non-NPI identifiers on their claim forms. The qualifiers will indicate the non-NPI number being reported. Enter in the shaded area of 24i the qualifier identifying if the number is a non-NPI. The Other ID# of the rendering provider should be reported in 24j in the shaded area.
The NUCC defines the following qualifiers used in 5010A1:
- 0B State License Number
- 1G Provider UPIN Number
- G2 Provider Commercial Number
- LU Location Number
- ZZ Provider Taxonomy (The qualifier in the 5010A1 for Provider Taxonomy is PXC, but ZZ will remain the qualifier for the 1500 Claim Form.)
The above list contains both provider identifiers, as well as the provider taxonomy code. The provider identifiers are assigned to the provider either by a specific payer or by a third party in order to uniquely identify the provider. The taxonomy code is designated by the provider in order to identify his/her
provider type, classification, and/or area of specialization. Both, provider identifiers and provider taxonomy may be used in this field.
The Rendering Provider is the person or company (laboratory or other facility) who rendered or supervised the care. In the case where a substitute provider (locum tenens) was used, enter that provider’s information here. Report the Identification Number in Items 24i and 24j only when different
from data recorded in items 33a and 33b.
Therabill will use the Provider from the Scheduling section of the Edit Session dialog to populate box 24i.
From the dashboard click on the green New Session button. You will be on the Entering New Session page. Enter the provider in the Provider field that will be performing services.
You can over-ride the information in the shaded section of Box 24j using the information in the Legacy IDs tab of the Edit Provider page.
