Taxonomy codes updation list

Taxonomy Codes Updated

Effective April 1, 2010, the Healthcare Provider Taxonomy Code (HPTC) will be updated. The HPTC is a Provider Classification System, which codifies provider types and areas for all medical-related providers. The new version of HPTC is available from the Washington Publishing company at:

If a HPTC is reported to Medicare, it must be a valid code or a claim level deletion (rejection) will occur on your MCS Edit Report. To avoid this type of claim level deletion (rejection), you need to verify that the HPTC entered in your software program is still valid by comparing the HPTC entered in your software to the new list of valid HPTCs. For help changing the HPTCs in your system, please contact your software vendor.



For your reference, the new, deleted, and changed codes effective April 1, 2010, are listed below.
