I am okay with removing the unique identifer as suggested by the petition for rulemaking
However to the best of my knowledge
National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) maintains NPI (National Provider Identifier)
· All licensed pharmacies are assigned a seven digit number known as the NCPDP Provider ID.
National Provider Identifier (NPI) is a ten digit number
A npi is searchable and accessible online
A npi is synonymous to an individual
If the unique identifer is to be removed
Other than payor sheets
By which means does anyone have the ability to reference a pharamacy?
Is there a way to find a pharmacy?
