Billing nuMBer inforMation The National Provider Identifier (NPI) is the standard unique health identifier for health care providers and is assigned by the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES). As a Medicare health supplier, you must obtain an NPI prior to enrolling in Medicare or before submitting a change for your existing Medicare enrollment information. Applying for an NPI is a process separate from Medicare enrollment. As a supplier, it is your responsibility to determine if you have "subparts." A subpart is a component of an organization (supplier) that furnishes healthcare and is not itself a legal entity. If you do have subparts, you must determine if they should obtain their own unique NPIs. Before you complete this enrollment application, you need to make those determinations and obtain NPI(s) accordingly. CMS-855B (07/11) American LegalNet, Inc. 1 Important: For NPI purposes, sole proprietors and sole proprietorships are considered to be "Type 1" providers.

When reporting the NPI of a sole proprietor on this application, therefore, the individual's Type 1 NPI should be reported; for organizations, the Type 2 NPI should be furnished. To obtain an NPI, you may apply online at For more information about subparts, visit to view the "Medicare Expectations Subparts Paper."
