Do I Need an NPI to Use Mentaya?

Yes, you need a National Provider Identifier (NPI) to use Mentaya. We require this information for two important reasons:

  • Client Eligibility Verification: We use your NPI to verify your client's eligibility for specific services and ensure accurate billing.

  • Claims Submission: We need your NPI to submit claims on your behalf to insurance companies for reimbursement

The good news is that the process is straightforward. Here's what you need to provide based on your provider type:

For Individual Providers:

  • Provider Name

  • Social Security Number (SSN)

  • Date of Birth

  • Country of Birth

  • State of Birth (if Country of Birth is U.S.)

  • Provider Gender

  • Mailing Address

  • At least one Practice Location Address and Phone Number

  • At least one Taxonomy (Provider Type)

  • State License Information

  • At least one Contact Person Name

  • At least one Contact Person Phone Number and Email

For Group Practices or Organizations:

  • Organization Name

  • Employer Identification Number (EIN)

  • Name of Authorized Official for the Organization

  • Title Position of Authorized Official for the Organization

  • Phone Number of Authorized Official for the Organization

  • Organization Mailing Address

  • At least one Practice Location Address and Phone Number

  • At least one Taxonomy (Provider Type)

  • At least one Contact Person Name

  • At least one Contact Person Phone Number and Email

Please note that if you are a group practice then you need a group tax ID (EIN) and NPI to submit claims with Mentaya. If you don't then the therapists under the group are actually considered independent contractors, and will need to sign up as solo providers with Mentaya.

Apply:

You can apply for an NPI online through the NPPES website. Alternatively, you can email the required information to [email protected], and our team will assist you with the application process.
