Clinics only need to use the Facility area of Admin, if they are sending patients out of the office for services like Lab work or X-rays clinic but, are going to submit a claim to insurance for the service.
Clinics Do Not need to add their own clinic as a Facility, for their info to print in box 32 of a HCFA form. That is handled in the Billing Entities area that is attached to a provider and selected in Payer settings.
The facility area in admin is capped at a 25 character limit.
To Add a Facility
Add in all Necessary information.
Name of Facility, Address, Phone, Fax, Billing ID, NPI and Other ID ( If the facility has one)
Once you select Save, the Facility is added to the list and can be pulled into Box 32
