NRPM: Standard Health Care Provider Identifier. c. Health care clearinghouses.

05/07/1998

Health care clearinghouses would face impacts (both positive and negative) similar to those experienced by health plans. However, implementation would likely be more complex, because health care clearinghouses deal with many health care providers and health plans and would have to accommodate both old and new health care provider identifiers until all health plans with which they deal have converted.
