How do I find and prove my Doctor's Tax ID # to Insurance Company?

how do i find where my tax office is

First, my insurance claim for my psychiatrist was denied because they claimed that mental health diagnosis codes stop at 312.00 and mine was 314.00. I just proved them wrong on that. Now they are claiming that my doctor does not have a valid tax ID code, even though my other insurance company has been paying. show more First, my insurance claim for my psychiatrist was denied because they claimed that mental health diagnosis codes stop at 312.00 and mine was 314.00.

Now they are claiming that my doctor does not have a valid tax ID code, even though my other insurance company has been paying him on the tax ID code I have for the last 14 years (My husband's company changed mental health insurance providers). I just checked and validated that he is a licensed physician in my state, but I have been unable to find a way to prove that his tax code is valid. His office will only confirm that it is his valid tax code, but the insurance company wants proof. All I can find are search companies who want a fee to prove that his tax code is valid.

The Tax # is printed right on the statement and has been verified by the doctor's office when I called them. The insurance company says that they will only accept the number if we set up a three way call with the doctor, which will cost me a minimum of $100 to the doctor for his time, and could take a month or two, as he is booked out very far. I'm sure there is no diagnosis code for the doctor to talk to the insurance company, and that money would come out of my pocket. This is for only one bill, and $100 is what the insurance company should be paying. Should I have to do this with every bill from him, it will get quite expensive. Since the money is being reimbursed to me, not the doctor (I pay him the full amount every visit), and I can prove he is licensed. why would they need verification of his #?
