      NUCC Releases Updates to the Health Care Provider Taxonomy Code Set

      January 3, 2008

      Chicago, IL - The National Uniform Claim Committee (NUCC) has released
      updates to the Health Care Provider Taxonomy code set, which will go
      into effect on April 1, 2008. The complete code set is available at:
      www.wpc-edi.com/codes/taxonomy. A list of the new codes is available
      at: http://www.wpc-edi.com/taxonomy/new and a list of the modifications

      Many changes have been made to the Health Care Provider Taxonomy code
      set, including the addition of five new codes, the addition of four
      definitions for existing codes, and one change to an existing code name
      and definition.

      When reviewing the Health Care Provider Taxonomy code set online,
      revisions made since the last release can be identified by the color
      code; new items are green, modified items are orange, and inactive items
      are red.

      The Health Care Provider Taxonomy code set is maintained by the NUCC.
      The NUCC is a voluntary organization whose members include
      representatives from major provider, payer, health researchers, and
      other organizations representing billing professionals, and electronic
      standard developers. Additional information about the NUCC is available
