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.
