Welcome to the Pharmacist Services Technical Advisory Coalition
PSTAC was founded in 2002 to improve the coding infrastructure necessary to support billing for pharmacists’ professional services. The Coalition works to provide the national leadership necessary to position and secure pharmacy’s place in the electronic data interchange (EDI) health encounter/claims processing and payment environment concerning all health care providers’ professional services.

National Provider Identification (NPI) Applications now being accepted
Health care providers that are considered “covered health care providers” under HIPAA are required to obtain a NPI number. A covered health care provider is a health care provider who transmits any health information in electronic form between two parties to carry out financial or administrative activities related to health care. Covered health care providers must obtain an NPI number by May 23, 2007.
Pharmacists and pharmacies are included as health care providers and are eligible to apply for an NPI number. Pharmacies and pharmacists who transmit health information in an electronic format must obtain an NPI number.
For more information or to apply for your NPI, please visit the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES)
