NCTracks staff will be available to assist registered NC providers with questions or concerns regarding NCTracks. Providers are advised to bring specific examples of issues, such as screen shots, NPI numbers, TCNs (claim numbers), denial codes, etc., so the NCTracks team will be able to provide more help.
