Provider Manual

The National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) collects identifying information on health care providers and assigns each a unique National Provider Identifier (NPI).

All HealthCare Provider must register an NPI number with the Department of Human Services (DHS). Please see the following links on how to register
