NAME AVOID NPI DUPLICATES
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
When entering/editing an NPI to an entry in the NEW
PERSON file (#200), the INSTITUTION file (#4) or the IB NON/OTHER VA BILLING
PROVIDER file (#355.93), Kernel needs to check if the NPI is already used by
an entry in any of the three files. If the NPI is already used, Kernel will
issue either an error or a warning message, depending on which file is
currently being edited.

An NPI used by an entry in file 4 cannot be used in an entry in either of the
other files regardless of whether the NPI is 'active' or 'inactive'.  An NPI
can be used in a single entry in both file 200 and file 355.93 at the same
time, but a warning is issued in that case.
