Type 1 NPI

Type 1 NPI and CHAMPS enrollment instructions

If you need a Type 1 NPI only (if you bill under a TIN or business name, you will also need a Type 2), follow the steps below to register for a Type 1 and enroll in CHAMPS.

Step 1: Register for a Type 1 NPI

There are three options to obtain an NPI:

  • Apply through the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) at https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov/#/. Individual providers must create a username and password through the Identity and Access Management System, then log in to NPPES using that username and password. 
  • Mail a paper application, Form CMS-10114 NPI Application/Update Form, to the NPI Enumerator address listed on the form. To request a hard copy application, call 800-465-3203 or TTY 800-692-2326, or email customerservice@npienumerator.com.
  • Give permission to an electronic file interchange organization to submit application data through a bulk enumeration process.

Step 2: Register the Type 1 NPI with CHAMPS for Michigan Medicaid through Healthy Kids Dental and Healthy Michigan Plan

Here is the link to register: https://milogintp.michigan.gov. See the enrollment guide here to enroll your Type 1 NPI as a rendering/servicing provider, associating to Delta Dental Plan of Michigan (“Delta Dental”). There will be 10 steps all together. You will need to complete all required steps, as outlined below. If optional, you may skip it.

Click “OK.” Then click the “Primary Specialty” tab. Change the drop-down from none to the other No Subspecialty option. No need to change the dates; leave the board Certified and Eligible as no. Save and close. Then close again. 
  3. Select Provider ID from the drop-down. Use the Delta Dental ID number: 4181610.
  4. Select State Professional License from the drop-down. Use the full 10-digit license number of the DDS (the leading numbers for MI are 2901XXXXXX).  Use the current date as the Start Date and Skip the End Date.

You may also call CHAMPS at 800-292-2550 and ask for assistance enrolling as an individual sole, rendering/servicing provider associating to Delta Dental.

Step 3: Add Type 1 NPI to your claims

When submitting a Michigan Medicaid claim to Delta Dental (Healthy Kids Dental, Healthy Michigan Plan, Medicare Advantage, etc.), the State of Michigan requires use of the rendering service provider NPI on the claim.  

  • Type 1 (individual NPI) goes in box 54.
  • Type 2 (billing NPI) goes in box 49.

Please be sure your practice management system also reflects the appropriate NPI number in this field for electronic claims submission.
