CMS to Disclose NPPES Health Care Provider Data September 4, 2007

August 8, 2007


National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) health care provider data will be disclosed to the public via the internet by CMS beginning on September 4, 2007. Data will be available as either (1) a query-only database, known as the NPI Registry, or (2) a downloadable file.

This extends the period of time in which enumerated health care providers can make any edits they feel necessary to their disclosable NPPES data. For assistance in making edits, view the CMS NPI webpage.
