National Provider Identifier (NPI)

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 requires the adoption of a standard unique identifier for health care providers.  The NPI Final Rule issued January 23, 2004 adopted the NPI as this standard.

An NPI is required for almost all providers wanting to enroll in the IHCP. Non healthcare providers, called atypical providers are not required to report an NPI. Waiver providers and most transportation providers are not required to have an NPI as these providers are considered atypical.

Use the online NPI Reporting Tool to report your NPI.
