How do your clinics and providers choose a taxonomy?

crystalp 6 years ago in User Group Help updated 6 years ago 4

Anyone know if there is a special science to choosing which taxonomy code your providers or clinics send with claims? Is there a right or wrong taxonomy code? Do we just need to choose whichever one fits the clinic or provider the best? I appreciate any suggestions.


Go to the NPI registry, enter NPI number and it will tell you the taxonomy code for that NPI

I just chose what seemed to fit best but I have also wondered where I could have received more information describing what each taxonomy code meant. 

We also use the NPI taxonomy code.
