Navicure (Duluth, Ga.), a provider of Web-based revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions for physician practices, can now submit National Provider Identifier (NPI) values to Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross/Blue Shield and commercial health plans that accept these values.

According to Navicure, practices can use its solution to meet NPI requirements even if an existing practice management system is unable to store and forward NPI values. The company contends that it supports dual submission and "NPI only" modes, as well as both the old 1500 form and new NPI 1500 professional form.

The initial deadline for NPI adoption has passed, but many payers — including Medicare — will require NPI values before the contingency date (May 23, 2008) announced by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, notes the company .
