NPI Frequently Asked Questions
NPPES is a database administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the electronic transmission of health information by standardizing the format of unique identification for healthcare providers and health plans.
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), there are two types of healthcare providers in terms of NPI – Type 1 and Type 2.
Type 1 NPI Providers: Healthcare providers who are individuals, including physicians, dentists, and all sole proprietors. An individual is eligible for only one NPI.
Type 2 NPI Providers: Healthcare providers who are organizations, including physician groups, hospitals, nursing homes, and the corporation formed when an individual incorporates him/herself.
A Federal Exclusion is an administrative action taken against an individual or entity (such as a provider or vendor) by the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Inspector General (OIG). The HHS OIG is in charge of enforcing exclusions against individuals or entities.
Individual states maintain a Medicaid Exclusion or Terminated list as well as federal. Employers need to search these in addition to the OIG LEIE and the SAM.gov. Today, there are 42 states that have a state Medicaid exclusion list.
Physicians and practitioners who do not wish to enroll in the Medicare program may “opt-out” of Medicare. This means that neither the physician/practitioner nor the beneficiary submits the bill to Medicare for services rendered. Instead, the beneficiary pays the physician/practitioner out-of-pocket and neither party is reimbursed by Medicare.
