The National Provider Identifier (NPI) is the standard unique health identifier (ID) for healthcare providers. This ID will replace the use of legacy provider IDs such as the UPIN, Medicare Provider Number, Medicaid Provider Number, etc. when required in the HIPAA mandated transactions.
CMS provides all the latest NPI news for healthcare providers, including a section for Medicare Fee-For-Service providers with helpful information about Medicare NPI implementation, FAQs, educational resources, and more.
The Free National NPI Number Registry allows you to search, verify or add an NPI number.
