The NPI used to identify the Rendering Provider or the Service Location must be external to the entity identified as the Billing Provider (for example; reference lab).

Only the provider’s NaviNet Security Officer has the capability to grant “user” access under each provider’s NaviNet account. Further information on granting NaviNet “user” access is available under the NaviNet Customer Support link once signed into NaviNet.)
Elimination of Hardcopy Provider Bulletin
To coincide with our dedication to increasing our BCNEPA NaviNet capabilities and our initiative to transition providers to utilize NaviNet as the preferred source of BCNEPA information, BCNEPA will be eliminating the mailing of the hardcopy Provider Bulletin for NaviNet enabled providers.
Beginning January 2010, NaviNet-enabled providers will no longer receive a hardcopy version of the BCNEPA Provider Bulletin via mail. The BCNEPA Provider Bulletin will remain posted and can be reviewed/printed from the BCNEPA Provider Center website that can be accessed through a provider’s NaviNet account.
BCNEPA will post a Blue Alert during the 1st week of each month on NaviNet when a new edition of the Provider Bulletin is available for display.
