National Provider Identifier (NPI)
  • The NPI is a 10 digit number and the standard
    unique  identifier for health care providers.
  • Many health plans, including Medicare, Medicaid,
    and private health insurance issuers, and all
    health care clearinghouses must accept and use an
    NPI in standard transactions by May 23, 2007. 

18
National Provider Identifier (NPI)
  • After this compliance date, health care providers
    may use only their NPI to identify themselves in
    standard transactions, where the NPI is called
    for.  
  • As a result of a Federal Mandate, DMAS will
    require all of its participating providers to
    obtain and use a National Provider Identifier
    (NPI) in lieu of your current Medicaid provider
    identification number(s) for all standard
    transactions, including paper claims.

19
National Provider Identifier (NPI)
  • The Department of Medical Assistance Services is
    targeting First Quarter 2007 as the starting date
    for accepting either the NPI or Medicaid
    Identifiers in the transactions from trading
    partners.
  • System changes must occur before an NPI can be
    accepted by DMAS. If an NPI is used in lieu of a
    Medicaid Provider ID in a claim prior to DMAS
    readiness announcement, it will be denied.
