Allocating a provider code

A provider who is approved by the CNS Council of Administration is given a provider code, which must then appear on all documents used in relations with the health insurance fund.

Accreditation is granted by the CNS Council of Administration, which meets once a month. It can therefore take some time to issue the accreditation.

Documents required to maintain accreditation

Accredited service provider - Documents to be submitted annually to the CNS

The following documents must be sent by the service provider to the competent CNS department by 30 June of each year, failing which the accreditation will be suspended:

  1. proof of membership of the Chamber of Skilled trades and Crafts;
  2. copies of the valid tax stickers of each vehicle issued by the Customs and Excise Administration until 30 June;
  3. a copy of the technical inspection certificate for vehicles in service;

Changes to vehicles and drivers

In order for transport by taxi or hire car with driver to be covered by health insurance, the vehicle and driver must be correctly declared to the CNS.
