April Deadline for Billing Changes at Florida Medicaid
Florida Medicaid has announced that agencies that are required to obtain an NPI number will no longer be able to submit X12 claim transactions that contain Florida Medicaid provider numbers. This will become effective April, 2011.
If you want to avoid disruption of service, you must make sure that your NPI numbers are properly mapped to your Florida Medicaid provider numbers. If you have multiple provider numbers, you will need to have the mapping relationship created prior to April.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Medicaid resource to make sure you have your NPI updated appropriately.
