National Provider Identifier (NPI) to Unique Physician Identification Number (UPIN) Crosswalk
The National Provider Indetifier (NPI) became the national standard identifier in May 2007.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has developed the
National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES)
to assign unique identifiers to health care providers.
The NPPES files contain all of the FOIA-disclosable data
for active and deactivated providers in NPPES.
The raw NPPES files for 2008 on contain up to 50 other identifiers per NPI which can have any of the following types:
Jean Roth created the NPI to UPIN crosswalk below from the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) downloadable data file for greater ease of use. An NPI can and often does have more than one UPIN associated with it. The crosswalk includes identifiers of any stated type if they look like a UPIN. That is, if they begin with a letter followed by five digits.Processed versions of the raw NPPES data these files are made from and an NPI to state license crosswalk are also available.
