For the current plan year, the agent and broker FFM RCL has a NPN Validation column. The indicator in the NPN Validation column is a check that occurs on the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR http://www.nipr.com/) database. A valid National Producer Number (NPN) and an active licensure status in a healthcare related line of authority are required to receive a “Y” for successful validation. If an agent or broker has an inquiry regarding their licensure status, the inquiry should be routed to NIPR customer service (http://www.nipr.com/index_contacts.htm). If the agent or broker’s NPN does not match licensure records on NIPR, download the Fair Credit Reporting Act form at http://www.nipr.com/index_fair_credit_reporting_act.htm and submit your dispute.

For a list of qualifying healthcare related lines of authority or if the agent or broker’s NPN is valid in NIPR and has an active status however, does not have a “Y” in the current year NPN Validation column please contact FFM Producers and Assisters Email Help Desk at FFMProducer-AssisterHelpDesk@cms.hhs.gov.

This only applies to agents and brokers who have not otherwise completed registration for the previous plan year. Agents and brokers that fall within this scenario will appear with registration completions for two consecutive plan years each having the same registration completion date.
