What does NAPPI stand for?

National Pharmaceutical Product Index (NAPPI CODE)


What does this code mean?

The NAPPI code is a unique coding system (identifier) for medicines, surgical or consumable products and medical procedures which allows you the consumer to claim a rebate / refund from your medical aid.
MediKredit has, over the years, undertaken the task to facilitate the adoption of NAPPI (National Pharmaceutical Product Interface) as a national electronic standard on behalf of the South African healthcare industry.


The NAPPI code therefore:

  • Is a recognised medical aid product code.
  • Enables you to apply for reimbursement from a medical aid scheme, but is not a guarantee of reimbursement.


Does ENTAP have a NAPPI Code?

Yes, the following of ENTAP‘s products have a Nappi Code:


Where can I find the NAPPI Code?

The NAPPI code for the aforementioned products can be found on the invoice that will be included in your order.

What does this mean for you the consumer?

It means that your medical aid might reimburse your ENTAP purchase. The reimbursement will come out of your medical savings plan.
Please make contact with them and submit the ENTAP NAPPI code when applicable.
We would like to emphasize that the reimbursement of your purchase is dependent on your medical aid provider’s terms.

How do you claim?

  • Purchase a NAPPI registered ENTAP product as per normal.
  • Keep the invoice.
  • Submit the invoice to your medical aid within 3 months of purchase.
