Connecticut Medicaid Provider List with NPI number in electronic data set

Kamran Ahmed filed this request with the Department of Social Services of Connecticut.


From: Kamran Ahmed

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of public records that include an updated list of all Connecticut State Medicaid healthcare providers with the inclusion of their National Provider Identifier (NPI) number and state healthcare license number, if available. I am requesting this information in electronic data set (CSV electronic data format is preferred; however, excel or PDF electronic formats are also acceptable). The Medicaid health care provider list may include but is not limited to Physicians (MD, DO), Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses, Clinical Nurse Specialist, CRNA, Nurse Practitioners, Midwives, Dentists, Podiatrists, Dental Assistants, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Optometrists, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, Marriage and Family therapists, Psychologists, Emergency Medical Personnel (EMTs, Paramedics), Respiratory Therapists, Radiology Technologists and any other available providers. All types of healthcare practitioners from all dates electronically available would be appreciated. Specific items to be included in data set:
1. Provider name
2. National Provider Identifier (NPI) number
3. Alabama State Healthcare License number and initial date of issuance or expiry (if available/applicable)
4. Education / School/Training, if available
5. Provider type (MD, DO, PA, RN, PT, OT, OD, CRNA, DMD, DDS, DPM etc)
6. Provider Specialty
7. Provider Practice Location
8. Please include Data Dictionary describing state Medicaid Data Sets
9. Please provide (if there is an existing) a static website link to verify an individual’s state healthcare licensure status provided by any and all available relevant state healthcare licensing boards (Medical Board, Nursing, Dental, Optometry, Podiatry, Psychology, PT, OT, Radiology Technologist, Respiratory Therapy, Chiropractor, Speech Therapy, Family Counseling, Social Work, etc).
If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please email me if the cost will exceed $50. However, I would also like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s healthcare transparency, healthcare access, fairness and greater overall public awareness.
The law requires that you respond to and fulfill this request "as promptly as possible." If you expect a significant delay in responding to and fulfilling this request, please contact me by phone or via email with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.
If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.
Thank you for considering my request.

I also request that, if possible and pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. § 1-212(d), fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest and not made for commercial gain. The requested documents will be processed by a representative of the news media/press and made available to the public at

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.
