The WCB is making a reminder for Alberta nurse practitioners regarding contract numbers. Please make note of the following:
When placing WBC claims:
NPs are to use their contract number (000084) when submitting reports and invoices. We have noticed that some NPs are incorrectly using the physician contract number (000001). Some EMR vendors have the NP contract number set up as a default, but others enable the selection of a contract number. WCB will be reaching out to the vendors to address this.
