Division of Federal Employees' Compensation (DFEC)
The Division of Federal Employees’ Compensation is requiring an additional data field for all Point of Sale (POS) pharmacy transactions. Effective May 31, 2017, the prescribing provider’s National Provider Identification (NPI) number is a mandatory field for all POS transactions for claimants seeking pharmacy benefits under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act. POS transactions will be denied for: claims that do not reflect the prescribing provider’s NPI number and/or for claims that reflect an NPI number but the NPI format is not valid.
