Are you receiving referrals from your area physicians or other healthcare professionals on an ongoing basis? If so, well done! Way to reach out and network in order to secure new avenues of bringing clients through your door. You can read more about sourcing physician referrals via an earlier post on our blog.
Since 2015, Healthy Bytes has been empowering dietitians to become an integral part of medical care by connecting them with patients, providers, and payers. In 2020, we’re taking that to the next level.
Introducing: the Healthy Bytes Network.
HIPAA regulations dictate that, as a health care provider working with health insurance companies, you need a National Provider Identifier (NPI) number. These 10-digit numbers are a way for the healthcare sector to identify health professionals consistently and they are publicly searchable.
There are actually two types of NPIs, logically referred to as “Type I” and, yes, “Type II”. Type I NPIs are also sometimes called individual or personal NPIs, while Type II NPIs can be referred to as either organizational or group NPIs.
For those of you who are RDNs and dietitians-to-be with glimmers of opening up your own private practices in your eyes, this post is for you!
We invite you to spend some time with this post (set it as a bookmark, too!), as it contains numerous resources for launching your private practice.
You’re invited! Join us for our free upcoming webinar on Demystifying Insurance, scheduled for November 7th, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. ET to 3:45 p.m. ET. Walk away from the session with a solid understanding of health insurance and how to make health insurance work for your practice.
