What is the taxonomy code for physical therapy?

The taxonomy code for a physical therapist is 225100000X.

Physical therapists are healthcare specialists who assess and treat persons who are experiencing health problems as a result of an injury or disease.

PTs are responsible for assessing joint motion, muscle strength and endurance, heart and lung function, and daily living activities, among other things.

Therapeutic exercises, cardiovascular endurance training, and training in daily living activities are all part of the treatment. They create therapy strategies for each patient based on their strengths, weaknesses, range of motion, and functional abilities.

The Purpose of Taxonomy Codes

Codes for taxonomy are intended for use in an electronic environment, mainly within ASC X12N Health Care transactions and some obligatory HIPAA transactions.

Taxonomy codes are also used when applying for a National Patient Identifier (NPI) with the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES).


Where do I find my taxonomy code?

Use the National Uniform Claim Committee (NUCC) code setlist to find the taxonomy code that best describes your provider type, categorization, or specialization.

Check your taxonomy code in NPPES

Please double-check your taxonomy code in the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) database to ensure that you can safely prescribe restricted drugs.

Taxonomy codes are administrative identifiers that identify the sort of provider you are and the area of expertise in which you specialize. At the claim level, a taxonomy code is a unique 10-character alphanumeric identifier that indicates your specialty
