You will need a billing NPI, TIN and your contact information such as company address, phone and fax number.

Yes. As a provider you still have to register. When you choose a vendor to process claims on your behalf, you hand over certain responsibilities that you will want to monitor or manage. Vendors are not permitted to enroll on behalf of a provider. Per CMS (IOM Publication 100-04, Chapter 24, Section 20), providers "are not permitted to share their personal EDI access number and password with any billing agent, clearinghouse/network service vendor; to anyone on their own staff who does not need to see the data for completion of a valid electronic claim, to process a remittance advice for a claim, to verify beneficiary eligibility, or to determine the status of a claim; and that no other non-staff individuals or entities may be permitted to use a provider's EDI number and password to access Medicare systems."
Only billing NPI's should be registered in EDISS Connect. During initial registration you can choose any billing NPI that will have a transaction type processed under your account. You will have the ability to enter additional NPIs after the registration process.
Billing NPI's are what payers process claims under and make payments to, thus EDI registration requires it for setup and processing. EDISS considers any other form of NPI optional and does not need it registered with EDISS.

In this scenario, a vendor is considered an Account Administrator. If you choose a vendor to have this role, that means you have hired an outside resource to manage your Connect account on your behalf. You will have view-only access to your account, meaning you will only be able to review your account and not make transaction related changes. This includes adding or editing transactions.
