The website works best in Internet Explorer versions 6.0 and higher and Firefox versions 2.0 and higher. Users may experience issues with other browsers and are recommended to use the browsers listed above. It is recommended that browser windows be opened using the icon on the desktop to avoid shared browser sessions. Some browsers share sessions regardless of how the browser is opened. Please check with the browser's vendor about session management. When NPPES detects multiple browsers open within the same session, NPPES will terminate the session to protect the data in NPPES. Data entered will be lost and will need to be re-entered.

NPI Registry Search Selection Page

The NPI Registry provides the ability to search for a provider using search criteria for either an individual or organization. If the NPI is known, either link can be selected with the same result. Users can access the full NPPES data dissemination file from the CMS NPI Data Dissemination page.

  • Individual: Use this link if the provider is an individual, using his or her name and practice location address.
  • Organization: Use this link when the provider has enrolled as an organization using the organization name and practice location address.
