The NPI was established as a national standard for a unique health identifier for health care providers, as part of HIPAA Administrative Simplification efforts for electronic transactions among trading partners. CMS announced its decision to implement the NPI for Medicare, in the final rule 69 FR 3434, published January 23, 2004.

However, CMS has not incorporated this Billing Provider NPI requirement into its Part C MA regulations for submission of risk adjustment data. CMS has incorporated the Part D program requirement that plan sponsors submit NPIs on the Prescription Drug Event Record (77 FR 22072, published April 12, 2012).
