What is an NPI number and what is it's use?
The NPI (National Provider Identifier) is a 10-position, intelligence-free, numeric identifier (10-digit number). These numbers are randomly selected, and are not based on any information pertaining to the healthcare provider, such as the state they live in or their medical specialty.
Effective May 23, 2007, all HIPAA covered entities such as Health Care Professionals, and Health Care Facilities, are required to submit claims with their NPI number. The intent of the NPI is to eliminate the need for payers and providers to keep numerous identifiers, and in turn simplify transaction processing between these entities.
