National Provider Identifier

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 requires the adoption of a standard unique identifier for healthcare providers. The National Provider Identifier (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 Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP). Some providers, such as waiver providers and many transportation providers, are considered atypical providers because they do not provide healthcare. Atypical providers are not required to have NPIs.

Use the online NPI Reporting Tool to report your NPI.
