Back  RFI # 479: 835 Transaction - NPI usage

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

The Rendering Provider REF segment at Loop 2110 carries an "HPI" qualifier which indicates the NPI. Why would an NPI be sent in a REF segment? There is no corresponding NM1 segment at this loop. I thought NPI was only carried in an NM1 segment using the XX qualifier. It was never understood that an NPI could be sent any other way. Please explain. Thanks.

835 Transaction - NPI in a REF Segment


This issue is explicitly addressed in guide 004010X091. The 2110 loop of the 835 does not contain an NM1 segment. Identification of a service specific rendering provider is provided in the REF segment at Table 2 position 100. In that segment, the REF01 qualifier "HPI" identifies that REF02 contains the National Provider Identifier (NPI).
