Provider Number

Short SAS Name: 
PROVIDER

The identification number of the institutional provider certified by Medicare to provide services to the beneficiary. NOTE: Effective October 1, 2007 the OSCAR Provider Number has been renamed the CMS Certification Number (CCN). The name was changed to avoid confusion with the National Provider Identifier (NPI). The CCN (OSCAR Provider Number) will continue to play a critical role in verifying that a provider has been Medicare certified and for what type of services.
