That's the BlueCard® provider line. To begin, you'll need to enter the patient's alpha prefix. If it's from Michigan, you'll be transferred to PARS. The system will want to know if you're:
- A professional provider billing on a CMS-1500
- A hospital or facility billing on the UB-04
- Calling for vision or hearing
You'll need to enter your NPI, your specialty, the patient's contract number, birth date, ZIP code and the first five letters of their first name.
