PECOS is the Medicare Provider, Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System. PECOS is Medicare's enrollment and revalidation system and it is the primary source of information about verified Medicare professionals. A NPI number is necessary to register in PECOS. Providers must enroll in PECOS to avoid denied claims.
The secondary taxonomy codes define the provider type, classification, and specialization. For individual NPIs the license data is associated to each taxonomy code.
|No.||Taxonomy Code||Type||Classification||Specialization||License No.||State||Primary|
|1||231H00000X||Speech, Language and Hearing Service Providers||Audiologist||270554||KY||No|
Taxonomy Description: (1) A specialist in evaluation, habilitation and rehabilitation of those whose communication disorders center in whole or in part in hearing function. Audiologists are autonomous professionals who identify, assess, and manage disorders of the auditory, balance and other neural systems. Audiologists provide audiological (aural) rehabilitation to children and adults across the entire age span. Audiologists select, fit and dispense amplification systems such as hearing aids and related devices. (2) An audiologist is a person qualified by a master's degree in audiology, licensed by the state, where applicable, and practicing within the scope of that license. Audiologists evaluate and treat patients with impaired hearing. They plan, direct and conduct rehabilitative programs with audiotry substitutional devises (hearing aids) and other therapy.
NPI Validation Check Digit Calculation
The following table explains step by step the NPI number validation process using the ISO standard Luhn algorithm.
|Start with the original NPI number, the last digit is the check digit and is not used in the calculation.|
|Step 1: Double the value of the alternate digits, beginning with the rightmost digit.|
|Step 2: Add all the doubled and unaffected individual digits from step 1 plus the constant number 24.|
|2 + 7 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 6 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 1 + 6 + 24 = 55|
|Step 3: Subtract the total obtained in step 2 from the next higher number ending in zero, the result is the check digit.|
|60 - 55 = 5||5|
The NPI number 1760066385 is valid because the calculated check digit 5 using the Luhn validation algorithm matches the last digit of the original NPI number.
