All Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech-Language Therapists and Audiologists that perform ORP services 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 business address and phone numbers because this information will be available on their website. Once assigned, a provider's NPI number is permanent and remains with the provider for life regardless of job or location changes.
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. An NPI number is usually assigned within one hour of completing the application.
Once you receive your NPI number, you will be ready to apply for the Ohio Medicaid number. Please notify HBS of your NPI number so that we can include it in our system.
