AOTA Comment on Care Team Member identifierThe American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) supports data elements that capture the services of multiple care team members. AOTA encourages USCDI to consider other identifiers in addition to NPI, as many clinicians (such as therapy providers) may not utilize an individual NPI if they work for a facility. Additionally, some clinicians who work under the supervision of other clinicians, such as occupational therapy assistants, bill under the supervisor NPI. License numbers may be an appropriate alternative; however, many clinicians have multiple licenses in different states with different numbers.
