Instructions for NPI C-SNAP Administrator Registration
Only registrants willing to serve as NPI C-SNAP Administrator for their NPI Number will be allowed to self-register. All other C-SNAP user accounts must be created by an existing NPI C-SNAP Administrator. Please complete the follow steps to quickly register and gain access to C-SNAP. It is the responsibility of the NPI C-SNAP Administrator to create, approve and oversee access of the NPI for their C-SNAP users.
Step 1 - C-SNAP User Agreement
Click on the Provider Registration button. Read the C-SNAP User Agreement. If you choose to accept the user agreement, select the "I Accept" radio button then "Continue" to proceed to the next step in the registration process.
Step 2 - Registrant Information
First, enter your Medicare group provider information:
- Provider Transaction Access Number (PTAN)
- National Provider Identifier (NPI)
- Provider Name
- Taxpayer Identification Number (Tax ID)
Then, supply your personal contact information:

C-SNAP only allows two (2) C-SNAP NPI Administrators to self-register a user account and gain immediate access to C-SNAP. It is the responsibility of the C-SNAP administrator to create and approve access to other C-SNAP users.
Step 4 - Verification
Verification is accomplished using information on a remittance advice with an issue date of 1 - 90 days prior to today. The remittance advice information entered in this step must be billed under the initial NPI you entered in Step 2 of the registration process.
Enter one of the following criteria:
- Medicare Number (HICN) and Date of Service

- Claim Number
Step 5 - Password Creation
After verification, you will create a personal password for your account. Once you have successfully completed this step, you may now access C-SNAP by logging in with your C-SNAP User Login ID and personal password.
Step 6 - e-Authentication and First Time Login
During the first successful login, each user will be required to complete their e-Authentication. To complete e-Authentication, the user must enter their date of birth and select and complete three security questions and answers (Q&A) pairs.
Thereafter, each time the user logs in, they will be required to enter their date of birth and answer one of their security questions.
