Classification scheme attributes
|Classification scheme:||Tier 2 Non-Admitted Services classification (version 6.0)|
A classification for non-admitted patient service events based on the type and specialty of the health-care professional providing the service and the nature of the non-admitted service.
Tier 2 classes provide a consistent framework for counting non-admitted service events. They are based on an assessment of both the type and specialty of the health-care professional providing the service and the nature of the service provided. This has resulted in a number of classes that is sufficient to ensure clinical meaningfulness and exclusivity across the spectrum of non-admitted services.
