PRV Taxonomy Codes Segment

PRV Taxonomy Codes Segment Description

The PRV Taxonomy Codes segment is used to the provider type by a 10-digit identification number known as a Taxonomy-Specialty code.  These codes are used by the health plan’s claim adjudication logic. The X12 standard says this segment is required only if the payer’s adjudication is known to be impacted by the provider taxonomy code. Experience shows most providers send this segment even though it is not absolutely mandatory in the TR3. To learn more  about EDI TR3s visit our course schedule page to sign up for a class.
