MoATA is asking all members to verify their NPI number – that is the National Provider Identifier. If you do not yet have your NPI, please click on the link below to obtain your number. It does not matter where you work or if you bill for services. It does matter that you are counted among the athletic trainers practicing in the United States.
“NATA views having an NPI number like having a state license: it’s a professional requirement and adds credibility to both the individual and the profession,” says Cate Brennan, director of external affairs. “Once ATs get their NPI number, it will be theirs forever — no matter where they work. There’s no downside to having an NPI number.” Applying for an NPI number is quick, easy and free.
The NPI is a 10-position, intelligence-free numeric identifier (10-digit number). This means that the numbers do not carry other information about healthcare providers, such as the state in which they live or their medical specialty.
