We are proposing to amend and establish the following Routine Use disclosure of information maintained in the system: Routine Use ten (10) is amended to add NPI to the list of healthcare provider demographic data that may be disclosed to a third party where the third party requires the Department provide that information before it will pay for medical care provided by VA.

A new Routine Use seventeen (17) is added. Provider identifying information may be disclosed from this System of Records to CMS to test the enumeration system for the NPI and, once the system is operational, to obtain a NPI for any eligible healthcare professional providing examination or treatment within VA healthcare facilities. VA needs the NPI to be able to bill for services provided by the healthcare provider. The Privacy Act permits VA to disclose information about individuals without their consent for a routine use when the information will be used for a purpose that is compatible with the purpose for which we collected the E:\FR\FM\20SEN1.SGM 20SEN1
