In an ongoing effort to promote accurate claims processing and payment, Empire BlueCross BlueShield (“Empire”) prefers the referring physician name and national provider identifier (NPI)to be included on professional home infusion therapy services claims in field 17 and 17a on CMS1500 claim forms.

Providers should report the referring physician information in accordance with the Empire guidelines in the EDI Companion Guide for electronically submitted claims.
