NPI Application Help
The website works best in Internet Explorer versions 6.0 and higher and Firefox versions 2.0 and higher. Users may experience issues with other browsers and are recommended to use the browsers listed above. It is recommended that browser windows be opened using the icon on the desktop to avoid shared browser sessions. Some browsers share sessions regardless of how the browser is opened. Please check with the browser's vendor about session management. When NPPES detects multiple browsers open within the same session, NPPES will terminate the session to protect the data in NPPES. Data entered will be lost and will need to be re-entered. Use of the Back and Forward browser buttons could result in loss of all the information entered. Users should use the Next and Previous buttons provided on the application to navigate between the pages of the application.

Reset Password Page

1. User IDs cannot be changed. Once you have successfully chosen a User ID and secret question/answer combination and submitted the record, the User ID and secret question/answer combination will remain tied to your record.

2. The Reset Password Page allows you to reset your forgotten NPI System password. You must provide the answers to the secret questions you selected when you created your account, and then enter a new password twice. If all of the information is correct, your password is reset to the new value. The password must be 8-12 characters long, contain at least one letter, one number, no special characters, not be the same as the User ID, and must be different from the previous 6 passwords.

Note: If you know your password, you can change it by clicking the Change NPI Password button on the User Menu Page after you log in.
