Description | Final Report
The purpose of this paper is to document current state efforts to implement the Source
of Payment Typology developed and maintained by the Public Health Data Standards
Consortium (PHDSC). The development of a standard source of payment classification
system is a high priority for public health and can be used for a wide variety of public
health activities such as monitoring healthcare access and documenting disparities. States
and researchers indicated that they would welcome an additional standardized source of
payment typology that would enable them to compare data across states and providers. The
PHDSC collaborated with states in the creation of the typology with the goal of incorporating
typical state requirements. It is important to note that to date there are no state mandates
to use the typology. This paper documents the efforts in the states of Georgia, Oregon,
New York, and California to voluntarily implement the typology.
