Finding a Provider ID Number
Insurance carriers ask for a Provider Name and Provider ID for plans that require a Primary Care Physician designation (HMO plans and POS plans). In most cases, the Provider ID can be found by searching for the provider on your insurance carrier's Find A Provider tool on their website.
- If the carrier does not show the Provider ID number in their directory, the provider themselves can give their ID number.
- Provider ID numbers are sometimes referred to as National Provider Identifier (NPI).
Using the doctor's name and location, employees can find NPI numbers using an online search.
