What is a NPI number?

eWaste Disposal, Inc, has one, it is 1952744674.

The NPI Registry enables you to search for a provider's NPPES information. All information produced by the NPI Registry is provided in accordance with the NPPES Data Dissemination Notice. Information in the NPI Registry is updated daily. You may run simple queries to retrieve this read-only data. For example, users may search for a provider by the NPI or Legal Business Name. There is no charge to use the NPI Registry.
Some health care providers reported their SSNs, IRS ITINs or EINs in sections of the NPI application that contain information that is required to be disclosed under FOIA. For example,

       1. Providers who are individuals may have reported SSNs or IRS ITINs in FOIA-disclosable fields (such as in the "Other Provider Identifiers" or "License Number" fields).

       2. An incorporated individual, when applying for an NPI for the corporation, may have reported his/her SSN as the EIN of the corporation.

CMS has urged health care providers to review their NPPES FOIA-disclosable data to ensure that it is correct and to remove any inappropriate or sensitive information that they may have reported in any of those fields that are "optional" (i.e., not required to be furnished) and /or replace the inappropriate or sensitive information that they may have reported in required fields with the appropriate information. If health care providers did not remove SSNs, IRS ITINs or EINs from FOIA-disclosable fields, CMS took action to not disclose any SSNs or IRS ITINs that were entered in those fields. CMS also took action to temporarily suppress reported EINs, even though they are disclosable under FOIA, because providers reported SSNs in the EIN field. After April 21, 2008, CMS will mask SSNs, IRS ITINs, and EINs when these numbers are entered in the Other Provider Identifier Number and License Number fields as follows: SSNs to “$$$$$$$$$”, IRS ITINs to “*********”, and EINs to “=========”. This action also includes the continued suppression of the EINs and the suppression of the Subpart Parent Organization TINs of all Organizations in the NPI Registry. CMS expects to lift the suppression of EINs and Parent Organization TINs in the future.

Bottled Water Carries Hidden Cost to Earth

Good for You, Bad for Mother Earth? | $1.79 might seem like a small price to pay for a bottle of water. But it costs the Earth far more than that.

Compared to a liter of tap water, producing a liter of bottled water requires as much as 2,000 times more energy, according to the first analysis of its kind. The study also found that our nation's bottled water habit sucked up the equivalent of 32 to 54 million barrels of oil last year.

"The bottom line is that we should understand better the implications of our choices," said Peter Gleick, president of the Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment, and Security in Oakland, Calif. "It suggests more ways to reduce energy use than maybe we otherwise think of."

Bottled water is a big business that is rapidly getting bigger. From 1976 to 2007, the average amount of bottled water drunk per person per year in the United States jumped from about 6 liters (1.6 gallons) to 116 liters (30.6 gallons).

In 2007, …


Air pollution can cause serious health problems. Rarely, it can even kill people — and we’re not exaggerating. That’s why we care so much about the laws that protect us from air pollution. Read on to learn more about the specific parts of our bodies that are affected by air pollution. Air pollution can be made of tiny particles or gases, and these get into your body when you breathe. Different types of air pollution do different things inside your body. Air pollution can directly irritate the eyes, nose, and throat, before it even gets into the lungs. It can cause runny nose, itchy eyes, and scratchy throat. LUNGS When you breathe in, air moves through your nose or mouth, down your throat into your trachea, and then into your lungs. Pollution can irritate the airways. When that happens, muscles around the bronchi get tight; the lining of the bronchi swell; and the bronchi produce excess mucous. When the airways are constricted, it b…
