Select Taxonomy from Dropdown Menu

On August 1, 2017, Partners began editing against taxonomy codes in the AlphaMCS claims system (See the June 30, 2017 Provider Alert for details.)

Providers need to be aware that when searching for the proper taxonomy, you can type/populate the field without selecting it from the dropdown menu. However, the information will not be entered in the field unless you select the taxonomy through the dropdown menu. If the field is blank, the claim will deny.

Providers should select the taxonomy from the dropdown menu to prevent denials.

As always, please address any claims-related questions to the Partners’ Claims Department at or call 704-842-6486.
