The MO HealthNet Program will end its National Provider Identifier (NPI) contingency plan and implement full use of the NPI for all claims processing immediately following the close of the financial cycle on Friday, May 8, 2008.  This means that effective May 9, 2008, districts will only use their NPI number when submitting claims and not their MO Medicaid Provider Number.
