Summary of Changes

New file: nucc_characteristics_30.csv

The Provider Characteristics code set is for use with health care provider information for enrollment and credentialing transactions and their corresponding responses. It is intended to provide codified responses to questions presented to a health care provider applying to or registering with an entity and to report the outcome of such application or registration. It may also be used for responses to inquiries regarding provider participation or registration in a program or plan. Provider characteristics are represented as modifiers in the UMLS Metathesaurus.
