NPI SETUP INSTRUCTIONS

The NPI application is in two parts and will take about ten minutes in total to finish.

.

PART ONE

Click “Accept” under “Terms and Conditions”

Create an account.

If you work by yourself, you only need an individual NPI. If you have more than one provider working at your company through the same Tax ID, you will also need an NPI for your company. This is called an organizational NPI. You should create both NPIs under the same account.

.

PART TWO

This will register your account with the username and password you created on the other site.
