Minnie White


In the 5010 TR3 278X217, Loop 2010C, NM106, Name Prefix states: "Required when military title or rank is needed by the UMO to determine the approriate benefit/level of care."
Are the "prefix" values codified? What values are acceptable? Should I use the same external code source as listed in the TR3 for the 5010 271 response (External Code Source: DOD1 - Military Rank and Health Care Service Region)?
