Provision of Your NPI Number 

To help exhibitors and sponsors comply with new federal healthcare laws, ASCRS asks its U.S. healthcare provider attendees to supply their 10-digit NPI (National Provider Identifier) number.

As of August 1, 2013, medical device and pharmaceutical companies are required by the Sunshine Act terms of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to use this number to report any payment or other transfer of value (TOV) given to healthcare providers with a minimum value of $10/payment or $100/year to the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). The Sunshine Act classifies TOV as, but not limited to, gifts, entertainment, certain meals, consulting fees, and honoraria.

If you have not supplied this number, you can add it when you register. This number will be part of the information embedded in your badge's barcode but will not be printed on the badge.

NPI numbers are public information. If you do not know your NPI number, you can search for your NPI. More information about the NPI is available from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Cancellation Policy 

Registrants who wish to cancel their registration should send a request to the ASCRS Meeting Registration Department via email, fax at (847) 427-9656, or mail prior to May 22, 2017. A $75 processing fee will apply to all cancellations. No refunds will be made on cancellations postmarked after May 22, 2017.
