Jeanne Petruzates

Description

Providers are submitting 837 (asc x12) 4010 version with loop 2310D/N301 filled with "Office" or the physician group name instead of the actual physical address of the site services were rendered.

Providers practice at multiple offices & sometimes these offices are in multiple cities.

The billing address can be located in another part of the state or in another state & we cannot properly apply R&C/UCR allowance's without the physical address of the service site.

Response

This is explicitly answered in guide 004010x098 in section 3.1 on page 307. A valid location is required in element N301. Direction is even provided in the N3 note for a situation where an address is not available. This response does not address HIPAA policy issue questions, which should be directed to askhipaa@cms.hhs.gov.
