Speak Out

March 2005
Urology Times;3/1/2005, Vol. 33 Issue 3, p4
The article presents views of various medical personnel about the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' new National Provider Identifier, which eventually will be used for all future Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance carrier transactions. Robert Hall of Traverse City, Michigan, said that he thinks it's probably a good idea. It should expedite things for medical personnel as far as medical identification and tracking. Mitch Kaye of Scottsdale, Arizona, wished the government would spend as much time to insure fair, quality practice by insurance companies before they pave the way for making physicians easier targets by having one common number.
