NPPES and the NPI Registry
Many of you have noted the recent instability of NPPES and the NPI Registry. CMS has begun implementing changes that should eliminate the instability. We expect that these changes will be completed next week.
NPPES will remain in operation while these changes are being made but the NPI Registry will remain down until all changes have been implemented. We expect the NPI Registry to be back in operation sometime next week. We apologize for this inconvenience.
-MM5584-Revised Discontinuance of the Unique Physician Identification Number (UPIN) Registry: The UPIN Registry Web site and lookup functionality will be available through May 23, 2008.
