The National Provider Identifier (NPI) Application and Update Form is used by health care providers to apply for NPIs and furnish updates to the information they supplied on their initial applications. The form is also used to deactivate their NPIs if necessary. The form is available on paper or can be completed via a web-based process. An NPI is expected to last for the "life" of the health care provider (i.e., until the death of an individual or until the dissolution of an organization); therefore, a health care provider applies for an NPI only one time. A health care provider must furnish updates to the required information given in the application whenever changes occur to those data. Updates can be mailed or submitted electronically.

The new estimates for completing the CMS-10114 (The National Provider Identifier Application/Update Form) for initial applications and reporting updates in initial application are taken directly from the actual applications processed for calendar year 2019 in NPPES and therefore more accurate than the prior estimates. In addition, CMS assessed (via NPPES) how many providers are currently using the CMS-10114 to update their initial application information. Those assessed providers were added to the current burden estimates. This decreased the number of respondents by 477,143 (1,473,185 to 996,042). In addition, the prior burden was based on an application completion time of .24 hours (20 minutes); however, the completion time has been reduced to .17 hours (10 minutes). The reduction in completion time reduced the burden hours by 312,911 hours (from 482,238 to 169,327).
