Account Discrepancies

The NPDB collects outstanding query fee balances. The NPDB will ask the eligible entity or self-querier to complete an Account Balance Transfer Request form to authorize settlement of any outstanding balance. The NPDB has the duty and legal authority to collect all amounts owed to it. It may do so without prior approval from the customer; this authority does not expire.
