Taxonomy codes for rendering providers not required on claims

The Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) has received transactions from providers to update or add taxonomy codes on rendering provider profiles for claim-filing purposes. As a reminder, taxonomy codes for rendering providers are not required on claims. If a taxonomy code for a rendering provider is submitted on a claim, the taxonomy code will not be validated. National Provider Identifiers (NPIs) for rendering providers are still required on all fee-for-service (FFS) and managed care claims.
