How do I get my NPI?
How to Apply for Your National Provider Identifier
- by online application
- by mailing in a written application
- or through an electronic file interchange provided by a large organization
Online and Paper Applications
To complete the online application, go to online application. You will need to have your legacy (current) provider identification numbers, UPIN number, taxonomy codes (See "What is my taxonomy number?" for a list of codes), license numbers, mailing address, practice address(es) and phone number and the name of the person who will serve as a contact should the enumerator need further information. If you have someone other than yourself complete the application, they will also need to know in what country and state you were born, your date of birth and your social security or individual taxpayer identification number.
If you wish to complete a paper application/update form (CMS-10114), this must now be obtained by contacting the NPI Enumerator. After receiving the form, mail the completed, signed application to the NPI Enumerator located in Fargo, North Dakota, whereby staff at the NPI Enumerator will enter the application data into the enumeration system. The form will be available only upon request through the NPI Enumerator. Health care providers who wish to obtain a copy of this form must contact the NPI Enumerator in any of these ways:
- Phone: (800)465-3203 or TTY (800)692-2326.
- Email: email@example.com.
- Mail: NPI Enumerator, P.O. Box 6059, Fargo, ND 58108-6059
Electronic File Interchange (EFI) Offers Bulk Enumeration for Large Organizations
What makes EFI so unique is that one file can contain hundreds or thousands of providers' applications. By submitting these applications both simultaneously and electronically, the administrative and financial burdens for both the provider community and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) are greatly reduced. These benefits are enhanced because EFI can also be used to change or update a provider's existing NPI information.
For more information on the EFI process, see the CMS Electronic File Interchange Summary (15-page PDF file; About PDFs).
