How to Apply for a National Provider Identifier NPI Number

A National Provider Identifier NPI Number is required for all health care providers. The objective is to ensure the secure and effective delivery of health care information through electronic means. The National Provider Identifier NPI Number does not embed information about the individual provider or health care organization. The first nine digits of the National Provider Identifier NPI Number are the identifier, while the last number of the National Provider Identifier NPI Number is a “check digit,” which helps prevent the use of invalid National Provider Identifier NPI Numbers, according to CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services). The fastest way to apply for a National Provider Identifier NPI Number is online.
