My claim was denied with remittance messages 183 and N574. I submitted the name and NPI of the ordering/referring provider. What is wrong?

The most common reasons for this denial are:

The provider does not have a have a current PECOS enrollment record. CMS maintains the Medicare Ordering and Referring File as a list of providers who are enrolled in PECOS and who are eligible to order or refer for services. Verify the provider's enrollment status with the provider and/or on the Medicare Ordering and Referring File. 

The NPI entered is for a group practice or organization, rather than an individual physician or non-physician practitioner.
