A: A physician or non-physician practitioner who did not establish a User ID and password in NPPES but applied for an NPI using the paper application can still establish a User ID and password in NPPES by going to NPPES at https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov/nppes. The NPI Enumerator at 1-800-465-3203 can provide assistance.


Q: My group practice or hospital applied for my National Provider Identifier (NPI), and I do not know my NPPES User ID and password. What do I do?
A: If someone applied for an NPI on behalf of a physician or non-physician practitioner, the physician or non-physician practitioner needs to check with that person and ask him or her for the User ID and password that he/she established when applying for the NPI. If unable to reach that person, the physician or non-physician practitioner needs to call the NPI Enumerator at 1-800-465-3203 and explain the situation. The NPI Enumerator will provide assistance.
