If you have an NPI, you are at risk of your information being used.
Criminal use of physician credentialing numbers, such as your National Provider Identifier (NPI), to perpetrate billing fraud is on the rise. Some estimates place potential fraud between $100 to $500 billion a year.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) admits it lacks the technology to identify these fake medical providers.
If you're like many physicians, your NPI may have already been compromised, and you don't know it. The only way to prevent identity theft is to monitor and report fraud when it happens.
For an individual physician, being wrongly accused of medical fraud through identity theft can mean financial disaster, to the tune of $650,000 to $700,000.
ProviderLock makes it simple. With continuous monitoring, you'll see if your profile has inaccurate information and be notified immediately when something changes on your record.
The publicly downloadable NPI database is used by many websites. But ProviderLock is the only monitoring system that updates our data based on BOTH the weekly and monthly updates from CMS.
By default, we will begin monitoring any license number you have entered with your NPI data. You can add additional license information and we will monitor it for and notify you if we detect any other providers using the same license information.
The Federal exclusions data we monitor is linked to NPI numbers. Exclusions we monitor are OIG (Office of Insepctor General) exclusions as well as SAM (System for Award Management) exclusions. Some of this data is updated daily and we will notify you if we detect any exclusions tied to the NPI we are monitoring.

A colleague of mine had his practice address changed and he didn't know about it for a year. Thankfully, nothing bad happened. ProviderLock will prevent this from happening to me.
ProviderLock gives me peace of mind. I am busy enough without having to worry if my data has been updated without me knowing about it. I can better focus on what is important.
I have not found any other service that comes close to what ProviderLock does for the price. Being able to monitor my additional licenses is amazing. I can't believe you guys don't charge more!
