BCBS Rejecting Claims from Solo Practictioners

Hello all. Several years ago Medicare had required all practices to transmit claims with a group number. It seems that Blue Cross has finally caught up. We are finding that claims sent to BCBS from several of our clients that do not have group NPI numbers are being rejected and the clients are being forced to register and get a group NPI number to continue to send Blue Cross claims. This process can take up to 60 day. Please give our office a call if you have any questions regarding this.RPK Tramplin
