Q&A: Eligible Entities

  1. A medical malpractice insurance company has eight regional offices and one main office. May the company register once with the NPDB (with one DBID) and create a different User ID for each of the eight regional offices?

    Yes. The company may register once with the main office address and receive one DBID and, subsequently, create multiple user accounts. Each authorized user is required to have a unique user account. Each user account will have a separate User ID and password. Each employee that is required to access the NPDB must have his or her own User ID and password.

Do you have a question about the NPDB Guidebook that you'd like answered?
