Revenue center codes are consistent with the National Uniform Billing Committee UB-04 codes (in more recent data) and UB-92 codes (in older data), unless noted below under State-Specific Notes. UB-92 and UB-04 coding criteria for revenue centers are relatively similar.
Revenue codes (REVCDn) are retained as provided by the data source. No validity checks are performed.
