National Provider Information
The Administrative Simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) mandated the adoption of a standard unique identifier for healthcare providers. The National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) collects identifying information on healthcare providers and assigns each a unique National Provider Identifier (NPI). We provide updated references, helpful information and a link for NPI application online.
The implementation of the NPI is a complex process that will impact all business functions of your practice, office or institution including billing, reporting and payment. Providers are urged to get, share and use their NPI to avoid any disruption in cash flow.
