Taxonomy Code Changes for Optician and Optometrist Providers

Information posted September 9, 2011

Effective September 8, 2011, TMHP has updated the taxonomy codes that are associated with optician and optometrist providers for the National Provider Identifier (NPI) attestation process. Providers are encouraged to verify that they have attested all appropriate taxonomy codes. Providers may refer to the January 2007 National Provider Identifier (NPI) Special Bulletin for Medicaid and CSHCN Services Program Providers, for detailed attestation instructions. Providers may refer to the Washington Publishing Company website for available taxonomy codes. The following taxonomy codes are affected: Provider Type Optician providers Optometrist providers Taxonomy Code 156FC0800X 156FC0801X 152WX0102X 152WL0500X Change Added Added End-dated End-dated Effective Date September 8, 2011 August 9, 2011

End-dated taxonomy codes are no longer valid effective August 9, 2011. To prevent inaccurate processing of claims and other transactions with TMHP, providers with NPIs that are attested with end-dated taxonomy codes must re-attest their NPIs with a valid taxonomy code. For more information, call the TMHP Contact Center at 1-800-925-9126 or the TMHPCSHCN Services Program Contact Center at 1-800-568-2413.
