Florida Blue - Type 2 NPI is Required for Providers Billing with EIN


For individual providers who submit electronic claims with their Employee Identification Number (EIN) rather than their Social Security Number (SSN), a new policy from Florida Blue applies immediately. The policy, which strengthens alignment with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), requires such providers to have a valid Type 2 National Provider Identification (NPI) on file with us. For providers who continue to use their Social Security Number and not an EIN, a Type 1 NPI can continue to be used. 

For more information please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions or contact Florida Blue at 800-727-2227, Mon. through Fri., 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. ET.
