Querying & Reporting Codes

It is important that all reports and queries you submit are properly completed and contain codes that accurately represent, for example, the type of practitioner, the reportable action, or the purpose of a query. Your accurate reporting and querying result in better information for protecting the public and in fulfilling the mission of the NPDB.


Based upon your suggestions, and changes that occur in the health care field, the NPDB periodically updates the code lists. Use the following lists to create accurate submissions and to interpret your NPDB responses.

The NPDB will implement improvements to the Code Lists on June 24, 2021. To prepare you for the upcoming changes the following documents are available:
