Provider Alert! Reminder of Updated Rendering Provider Edit RequirementsTexas Children's Health Plan
Date: November 10, 2022
Attention: All Providers
Effective Dates: June 21, 2022 for rendering edit requirements
Further clarification provided: November 10, 2022
Providers should monitor the Texas Children’s Health Plan (TCHP) Provider Portal regularly for alerts and updates associated to the COVID-19 event. TCHP reserves the right to update and/or change this information without prior notice due to the evolving the nature of the COVID-19 Event.
Call to action: Texas Children’s Health Plan (TCHP) would like to remind providers of billing requirements for the rendering provider taxonomy on professional claims. Our contracted clearinghouse, Change Healthcare (CHC), will reject any claims that do not contain proper Billing Provider Taxonomy Numbers, Billing Providers NPI’s, and/or rendering provider taxonomy when applicable.
Rendering Taxonomy code billing requirements can differ depending on the following:
- Rendering National Practitioner Identification (NPI) is different than the Billing NPI
- Rendering NPI is the same as the Billing NPI
The rendering provider taxonomy is required when the rendering provider is different than the billing NPI. This information submitted must match the State’s Master Provider File effective on the date of service for the claim.
Below are scenarios to serve as guidance with the Rendering Taxonomy Code Billing Requirements:
|Rendering NPI is different than the billing NPI.||Rendering Taxonomy is required.|
|Rendering NPI and Billing NPI are the same.||Rendering Taxonomy is not required.|
How this impacts providers: Here is a summary of the required fields for Professional 837P (CMS/1500) Claims:
|2000A PRV (billing taxonomy required) *
2300 CLM05-01 (header, place of service code)
2400 SV105 (service detail, place of service code)
|§ The billing provider taxonomy is required on all claims.
§ The rendering provider name, NPI, and Taxonomy are required on Professional claims when Rendering Provider information is submitted at the claim and/or service line level. Taxonomy and NPI used should be those attested with at Texas Medicaid.
§ There are no attestation checks at CHC; this is done at TCHP for billing provider and rendering provider.
§ CHC will check the following:
§ Each detail service line. If “ALL” lines do not meet exemption Place of Service (POS) list, the edit for rendering provider/taxonomy will appear and
§ CHC will also check the header and service detail line POS values.
§ TCHP’s contracted clearinghouse, CHC, will reject any claims that do not contain proper Rendering Provider Taxonomy Numbers and/or Rendering Providers NPI’s
|2310B PRV Rendering Provider Taxonomy||§ Taxonomy and NPI used should be those attested with Texas Medicaid
