CMS HIPAA Administrative Simplification Infomation

I received this notice and reminder from the CMS HIPAA outreach listserve today:

Reminder--Under the National Provider Identifier Regulation (that was published in the Federal Register on January 23, 2004), a health care provider who is a covered entity, as defined at 45 C.F.R. & 160.103, is required to obtain a National Provider Identifier (NPI) by May 23, 2007. To apply online go here.

Announcing the new CMS web page dedicated to providing all the latest NPI news for Fee-For-Service (FFS) Medicare providers! Visit on the web. While this page is dedicated to the FFS community, it contains helpful information and links that may benefit all health care providers.
