HCIdea Prescriber Lookup (Including NPI!) Member Discount
THIS DISCOUNT IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS AND ONLY BY CONTACTING PSSNY FIRST. Working with the National Association of State Pharmacy Associations (NASPA), NCPDP is offering PSSNY the opportunity to provide NCPDP's web-based HCIdea Prescriber Look-up product to PSSNY members for heavily discounted subscription fees. Pharmacies must contact PSSNY and verify participation and membership. PSSNY will then provide NCPDP with information on member pharmacies wishing discounted pricing and NCPDP will extend the discounted pricing to these pharmacies.
The HCIdea Prescriber Look-up tool is a great improvement over the NPI Registry provided by CMS. Pharmacists may search for a prescriber in the HCIdea prescriber database simply by entering a valid DEA number. Or, pharmacists can perform a geographic search based upon name and city or state. More pharmacy friendly search criteria save pharmacists time filling prescriptions or updating prescriber files and therefore money.
In addition to NPIs, the prescriber records show multiple addresses and phone/fax information, DEA information, information on licensing and prescriber specialties.
Enterprise is offering a flat 10% discount to PSSNY Members! Be sure to enter the corporate code when asked!!! Don't know the code? Join today and get it! Members can email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the code.
