In March 2009, Kentucky Medicaid announced a mandate that by July 1, 2009, all outpatient hospital providers and renal dialysis clinics would be required to bill claims to the state using 11-digit National Drug Codes (NDC) in lieu of the standard 10-digit code specified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The NDC, a unique, three-segment number, which is a universal product identifier for medications, is required for healthcare facilities to ensure proper reimbursements from Medicaid.
