(Current Update 9/4/2019): Save enormous time and effort on strategic planning and market analysis exercises by dropping this data set into your mapping program and filtering on geography, employers, and provider specialties. This list is updated bi-monthly and identifies all Medicare billing reassignments by U.S. physicians, advanced practice providers, and other healthcare professionals to their employers.
This data set is created and maintained by joining the NPI Data Dissemination file together with the Medicare Reassignment List. The NPI data is updated weekly and the Medical reassignment list is updated bi-monthly. HCTadvisor publishes the updated joined data set every other month.
The data set is separated into 56 comma-separated files (csv). The files are organized by the U.S. states or territory identified in the Medicare record for the individual professional. If there is no state in the Medicare record, then the practice location’s state in the NPI record is relied upon for the individual medical provider. All 50 states and the District of Columbia are included. The territories include Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa.
- Most Pediatricians do NOT register with Medicare, and there are no Medicare reassignment records for most pediatricians. Unmatched pediatricians, without Medicare reassignment records, are still present in the files from the NPI records.
- If medical providers do not update their Medicare and NPI record when they move, HCTadvisor separates their records into a reference file to quickly identify medical professionals whose state address records do not match between the Medicare and NPI databases. As stated in the Data License Terms & Conditions, HCTadvisor has made no effort to verify the quality or accuracy of the underlying data, nor modify the Data as received from the U.S. government or other source. HCTadvisor makes no representations as to the accuracy, adequacy, completeness, legality, reliability or usefulness of the Data, and HCTadvisor shall not be responsible for the use or misuse of the Data by the Licensee or any third party.
