ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice establishes the data that are available from the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES). In addition, this notice addresses who may have access to the data or may receive data from the system, the processes for requesting and receiving data, and the conditions under which data may be disclosed. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patricia Peyton, (410) 786–1812. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background A. Legislative and Regulatory Background The Administrative Simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) required the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to adopt a standard unique health identifier for health care providers. On January 23, 2004, HHS published a final rule in the Federal Register that adopted the National Provider Identifier (NPI) as the standard unique health identifier for health care providers (69 FR 3434). The NPI final rule established the National Provider System (NPS) and requires, among other things, that the NPS disseminate data in response to PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30011 approved requests. The NPI final rule stated that we would publish a notice in the Federal Register describing our data dissemination strategy and the process by which we would carry it out (69 FR 3456). Therefore, we are publishing this notice. B. Operational and System Background On July 28, 1998, in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, we published, in the Federal Register, a System of Records (SOR) notice for the National Provider System (NPS) (63 FR 40297). The NPS is the system, as described in the NPI final rule, that will be used to enumerate health care providers and house the information provided on health care providers’ applications for NPIs. The NPS is now contained within the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES). We are in the process of revising the Privacy Act SOR notice and will soon publish an updated SOR notice. The updated SOR notice will reflect the change from NPS to NPPES and will incorporate other changes necessitated by organizational and name changes and information contained in the NPI final rule. The updated SOR notice will also contain language that will clarify its consistency with the data dissemination policy described in this notice. (The existing SOR notice, although it is being revised, supports the data dissemination policy described in this notice.) The NPPES enumerates health care providers and houses their NPIs and information from their NPI applications/updates. The NPPES also would be capable of enumerating health plans and housing their standard unique health identifiers and information from their health plan identifier applications/updates once a standard unique health identifier for health plans has been adopted. Covered entities under HIPAA are required to use NPIs to identify health care providers in standard transactions beginning no later than May 23, 2007 (small health plans have until May 23, 2008). (See the Standards for Electronic Transactions and Code Sets final rule published on August 17, 2000 (65 FR 50312), the Modifications to the Electronic Transaction and Code Sets final rule published on February 20, 2003 (68 FR 8381), and the NPI final rule published on January 23, 2004 (69 FR 3434)). Covered entities include health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers who transmit any health information in electronic form in connection with a transaction for which the Secretary has adopted a standard. The NPPES uniquely identifies health care providers by the use of an E:\FR\FM\30MYN1.SGM 30MYN1
