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?
