National Provider Identifier (NPI) Numbers, Revisited

National Provider Identifier (NPI) Numbers, Revisited

HIPAA regulations dictate that, as a health care provider working with health insurance companies, you need a National Provider Identifier (NPI) number. These 10-digit numbers are a way for the healthcare sector to identify health professionals consistently and they are publicly searchable.

There are actually two types of NPIs, logically referred to as “Type I” and, yes, “Type II”. Type I NPIs are also sometimes called individual or personal NPIs, while Type II NPIs can be referred to as either organizational or group NPIs.
