What is an NPI Number?
The National Provider Identifier (NPI) is a standard public unique identifier assigned to HIPAA covered providers. The NPI is a 10-position all-numeric identification number assigned by the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) to uniquely identify a health care provider.
NPI numbers won't change even if the health care provider name, address, taxonomy or employer changes.
The adoption of The NPI Final Rule in January 2004 established the NPI number as the standard unique identifier for all HIPAA standard transactions, replacing all legacy identifiers like UPIN numbers.
Who needs an NPI number?
All health care providers like physicians, suppliers, hospitals, medical groups or medical organizations that engage in HIPAA covered transactions need a NPI number. You are A HIPAA-covered entity if you electronically transmit health care information in a HIPAA standard transaction.
