835 PLB01 Segment Issue: NPI Instead of Tax ID, TR 27417 This issue only applies to Trading Partners using the 835 transaction (Health Care Claim Payment/Advice). Currently, the PLB01 segment is being populated with the provider federal tax ID on the 1st PLB segment, and then all other PLB01s reflect the NPI. We are working to resolve this issue. The PLB01 segment will be corrected to reflect the NPI and will no longer reflect the federal tax ID. We will notify you when this issue has been resolved.

The PLB01 segment issue has been corrected to reflect the NPI and will no longer reflect the federal tax ID. No provider action is needed.
