All alumni who wish to bill insurance companies, you need to register for National Provider Identifier (NPI). The NPI has to be on every bill.
Please follow this link https://npiregistry.cms.hhs.gov/ to register.
The NPI Registry Public Search is a free directory of all active National Provider Identifier (NPI) records. Healthcare providers acquire their unique 10-digit NPIs to identify themselves in a standard way throughout their industry.
Individuals or organizations apply for NPIs through the CMS National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES). After we supply an NPI, we publish the parts of the NPI record that have public relevance, including the provider’s name, specialty (taxonomy) and practice address.
CMS provides this service based on federal law (45 CFR Part 162). We also supply this directory in a full download file, or through an Application Programming Interface (API).
If you are a provider with questions about your record, our Enumerator can assist you: 800.465.3203 | 800.692.2326 TTY | email.
