Cognosante Wins New NPPES & NPI Contract


July 9, 2015

Cognosante, as a valued subcontractor to TurningPoint Global Solutions, has been awarded the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) Support Services contract by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The team – TurningPoint, General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), and Cognosante – will jointly deliver the NPPES and National Provider Identifier (NPI) Enumerator scope of work. Under this contract, Cognosante will operate a portion of the NPI Enumerator contact center services.

Since 2005, Cognosante has been CMS’s vendor of choice to perform the NPI Enumerator scope of work, and Cognosante’s Health Data and Communications unit looks forward to continuing the NPI Enumerator legacy under the new contract model.
