Important Notes

Aspirus Health Plan requires the corresponding taxonomy to be submitted whenever a National Provider Identification (NPI) is reported on a claim submitted directly to Aspirus Health Plan or on claims that will crossover and be coordinated with Aspirus Health Plan coverage. When taxonomy is not reported on a claim that includes a NPI number(s), the claim will be rejected. 

    • For professional claims (submitted via 837P or CMS 1500) – billing and rendering taxonomy.
    • For institutional/facility claims – billing (submitted via 837I or UB04) and attending taxonomy (submitted via 837I).
