Have a new employee who is a licensed massage therapist?  Need an NPI number for billing purposes or to go through credentialing process to add the LMT to your preferred provider contract?  
 
Here's where to go to apply for an NPI for your new employee https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov/NPPES/Welcome.do
 
Here's where I got the taxonomy code for a massage therapist

You do not have to apply for a new NPI number for your NEW massage therapist employee if they already have an NPI number. You can use the NPI Lookup tool at https://www.npinumberlookup.org/ to find the number if the LMT doesn't know it. The NPI number follows a provider for life and they never get more than one - even if they were an independent contractor previously and are an employee now.
