Adding Additional Provider Numbers

Adding Additional Provider Numbers

Cutting Edge Software can easily handle different provider numbers for the same provider.

Within the Facilities database there is a field for the Doctor's (Practitioner's) provider number. Simply enter the provider number you wish to use for services at that hospital or facility.



If you have only one provider number that you use for all sites, (e.g. for your office) then just enter that number for all hospitals and other facilities.

If your provider number is different at each site for billing purposes, just edit each of the Facility records to show the new number.

NOTE: There is also a field for Hospital Provider Number. Do not edit this. It identifies the facility to Medicare and the Funds. It's not related to your individual provider number.
