Taxonomy code and requirements for Florida Medicaid claims

As of March 1, 2022, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) requires billing and rendering providers to include the following information on your claims. Ensure your information matches the current provider enrollment information on file with AHCA or your claims will deny beginning Oct. 1, 2022.

  • National Provider Identification (NPI) number for both billing and rendering provider
    • This is the NPI enrolled (limited/fully) with Florida Medicaid
  • Taxonomy Code for both billing provider and rendering provider
    • This is the taxonomy code appropriate to the services provided and to your enrolled provider type and specialty
  • Address with ZIP+4 code
    • This is the provider's street address and ZIP+4 code that’s enrolled with Florida Medicaid
