9/24/13 PROVIDERS WITH MULTIPLE LOCATIONS
A single authorization will cover services at multiple locations billing under the same NPI.
All providers must register for access to the electronic submission tool. For security reasons, providers previously registered with CCME must re-register. Initially, due to the expected high volume of registrants and the security measure of sending PIN/password information via snail mail, you should allow up to 10 business days to receive this information.
