NPI Information

What is an NPI?

A National Provider Identifier (NPI) number is an identifying number given to health care providers, companies dealing with health plans and health care clearinghouses. NPI numbers are a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Administrative Simplification Standard aimed at simplifying the control of electronic data for administration of health insurance claims and payments in the USA.
