Hospital Revenue Codes are part of the UB-92 form specification (in a
loosely defined sort of a way). I believe UB-92 is specified by Medicare,
aka HCFA. Grubbing around their web site might produce something of
interest. Hmmm... no, looks like there's a third party involved, see links
More information is available here:
(http://www.hcfa.gov/medicare/edi/edi5.htm), search for 'HCFA-11450 (UB-92)'
in the page.
A full specification of the UB-92, including rev codes, is here:
