 National Provider Identifier

The NPI is a national standard under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Administrative Simplification provisions.  

The NPI is a unique identification number for covered health care providers.  The NPI is issued by the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES).Covered health care providers and all health plans and health care clearinghouses must use the NPI in the administrative and financial transactions (for example, insurance claims) adopted under HIPAA.  

The NPI is a 10-position, intelligence-free numeric identifier (10-digit number). The NPI does not carry information about healthcare providers, such as the state in which they live or their medical specialty. This reduces the chances of insurance fraud.  Covered providers and suppliers must share their NPI with other suppliers.

 Medicare Provider Transaction Access Number

Medicare Provider Transaction Access Number (PTAN) is a Medicare-only number issued to providers by Medicare carriers upon successful enrollment to the Medicare program. 

The NPI and the PTAN are related to each other for Medicare purposes. A provider must have an NPI and will have one, or more, PTAN(s) related to it in the Medicare system, representing the provider’s enrollment. If the provider has relationships with one or more medical groups or practices or with multiple Medicare contractors, separate PTANS are generally assigned. 

Together, the NPI and PTAN identify the provider, or supplier in the Medicare program. CMS maintains both the NPI and PTAN in the Provider Enrollment Chain& Ownership System (PECOS), the master provider and supplier enrollment system.
