National Provider Identifier (NPI) Presentation (PDF)
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires the adoption of a standard unique identifier for health care providers, the National Provider Identifier (NPI). The NPI is 10 digits in length and will replace the current LEA Medi-Cal provider numbers. To comply with this requirement, CMS developed the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) to assign these unique identifiers.
