Industry Standard Charge Codes

Healthcode Service Charge Code Classification (HSCCC)

As part of our role as the official market clearing organisation, we define, develop and maintain a suite of coding standards and classification covering clinical and non-clinical services. They are used primarily for charge-line items on electronic medical invoices and enable private medical providers and insurers to use a common language.

  • Provides an industry standard for billing

    HSCCC ensures the provider and payer have a common understanding.

  • Enables industry stakeholders to communicate using a common language

    HSCCC enables organisations to maintain their own terminology and use a common language to communicate with other stakeholders.

  • Improves data accuracy

    Standardised charge codes and classifications reduce the risk and costs of disputes.
