Live NPI Number Lookup

NPI Number Data Served in Real Time From The NPPES Registry API


What is an NPI? Why is a "live" NPI lookup better?
A National Provider Identifier or NPI is a unique 10-digit identification number issued to health care providers in the United States by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS has made this data public. This site connects directly to the CMS source data via the application programming interface (API) provided by NPPES. Unlike other websites, the data on this site is always up-to-date or "live".
All HIPAA covered healthcare providers (e.g physicians, midwives, NPs, dentists, etc.) or organizations (e.g hospitals, pharmacies, medical device companies, etc.) must obtain an NPI for use in all billing transactions. As a national number, an NPI remains with the provider regardless location or employer changes.
