Welcome to investigateyourdoctor.com - A comprehensive resource of information about health care providers in the United States of America. Our goal is to provide details of great health care providers to consumers through a list of more than 2 million of Medicare or Medicaid-certified and other health care providers in the United States of America.
investigateyourdoctor.com is not associated, endorsed or authorized by the Social Security Administration, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), or the Department of Health and Human Services nor do we claim to be. All information provided on this site is collected from public sources or shared by consumers themselves.
The information being disclosed on the NPI Registry and in the downloadable files are FOIA-disclosable and are required to be disclosed under the FOIA and the eFOIA amendments to the FOIA. There is no way to ‘opt out’ or ‘suppress’ the NPPES record data for health care providers with active NPIs.
The NPPES Data Dissemination Notice and outreach documents from CMS encouraged health care providers to review their FOIA-disclosable NPPES data and edit it as necessary and to remove, if they wished, sensitive data from FOIA-disclosable fields that were furnished on an optional basis (i.e. data that were not required to be furnished in order to apply for an NPI). Many health care providers have taken some or all of these actions.
If the downloadable file or the NPI Registry reflects information that is incorrect, health care providers should correct that information. At any time, providers, or someone acting on their behalf, may edit their records by going to https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov , or by obtaining a paper NPI Application/Update Form (CMS-10114) from the NPI Enumerator or from the CMS forms page (http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/CMS-Forms/CMS-Forms ) and mailing the completed, signed form to the NPI Enumerator. Providers who need assistance in editing their records should contact the NPI Enumerator by phone at 1-800-465-3203, by email [email protected], or by letter: NPI Enumerator, P.O. Box 6059, Fargo, ND 58108-6059.
