Taxonomy Codes allow the provider to identify their specialty at the payor level. PPOs also use provider specialties to group similar provider types and indicate correct specialty designations on provider finders.
Taxonomy Codes have 3 levels:
Level I is the provider type which is a
major grouping of health care providers. For example: Dentists, Osteopathic Physicians, and Chiropractors.
Level II is Classification or a more specific service or occupation related to the provider type.
Level III is the Area of Specialization. This is a more specialized area of the classification in which a provider chooses to practice or make services available. This is usually based upon the sub-specialty certificate.
