Start with the original NPI number, the last digit is the check digit and is not used in the calculation.
1013085554
Step 1: Double the value of the alternate digits, beginning with the rightmost digit.
20230810510
Step 2: Add all the doubled and unaffected individual digits from step 1 plus the constant number 24.
2 + 0 + 2 + 3 + 0 + 8 + 1 + 0 + 5 + 1 + 0 + 24 = 46
Step 3: Subtract the total obtained in step 2 from the next higher number ending in zero, the result is the check digit.
50 - 46 = 44
