Communications

From: Kamran Ahmed

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Maryland Public 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 Maryland State Medicaid healthcare providers with the INCLUSION of their respective National Provider Identifier (NPI) numbers in electronic data set (CSV electronic data format is preferred; however, excel or PDF electronic formats are also acceptable). In addition any and all types of Maryland state licensed healthcare practitioners from all dates electronically available (active, inactive and retired) licensee data sets would be greatly appreciated. Specific items to be included in data set:
1. Provider name
2. Medicaid Identification number (if applicable).
3. National Provider Identifier (NPI) number
4. Maryland State Healthcare License number and initial date of issuance or expiry (if available/applicable)
5. Provider type (MD, DO, PA, RN, PT, OT, OD, CRNA, DMD, DDS, DPM etc)
7. Provider Specialty, Provider Practice Location
8. Please include Data Dictionary describing state Medicaid Data Set
9. Please provide (if there is an existing) a static website link for updated Medicaid Provider information.

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.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

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 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Kamran Ahmed
