[Unshared]Element Submission Guideline The Primary Specialty code, assigned by the payer, to the provider. Carriers must provide a cross-reference table for any values used in this field. If the Plan can not determine which specialty is primary, then populate this field with the provider's specialty for purposes of assigning cost and quality measures. For non-physicians, set this to a value that indicates that the provider is a hospital or facility or is an entity not providing services and therefore has no specialty. Report the standard Primary Specialty code of the Provider here. Report the standard Primary Specialty code of the Provider here.
