The Source of Payment Typology was developed and is maintained by the Public
Health Data Standards Consortium's Payer Type Subcommittee. The purpose
of the Payer Typology Subcommittee is to create and refine a standard to allow
consistent reporting of payer data to public health agencies for health care services
and research. With the development of the Source of Payment Typology there is
an additional standard for use by those collecting data or analyzing health care
information. The Source of Payment Typology is accepted by the following major
standard setting organizations:
- ANSI X12 recognizes the typology as an external code list. This value set will
be included for reporting in all 837 guides starting with the publication of the draft
set of ANSI X12 implementation guides (6020).
- However, until the publication of the next set of guides, organizations that
need or want to implement the Source of Payment Typology in 4010 and
5010 guides can use the File Information (K3) segment.
- Health Level 7 (HL7) recognizes the PHDSC Source of Payment Typology (Payer Typology) with a Code System Object Identifier Definition (OID) of 2.16.840.1.1138220.127.116.11, for use in HL7 messaging standards.
- The National Uniform Billing Committee (NUBC) and the UB-04 specification's
document has been updated to include reference to the Source of Payment
Typology in the part of the UB form that identifies external code lists. This was
effective July 1, 2009.
