All school-based therapists are required to obtain a "National Provider Identification" (NPI) number.
An NPI number is a unique 10-digit identification number issued to healthcare providers by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). When applying for this number, you may want to use your personal address and phone numbers because once assigned, a provider's NPI number is permanent and remains with the provider regardless of job or location changes. If you are uncomfortable using your personal information, use the school district address and phone number.
The quickest and easiest way to apply is online, which will take you approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Line by line instructions on how to apply are listed on the following link: NPI Enrollment Instructions. To apply for an NPI number, please click on the following link: https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov. If you need assistance during the NPI application process, please contact the NPI Enumerator at 1-800-465-3203 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you receive your NPI number, please notify HBS of this number so that we can include it in our system.
