Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

Submitter

Carol Lewis

Description

The intent of the decimal point and ICD codes in the 834 TR3 is not specifically stated. Based on the response in HIR 856, one could assume the 834 may have intended for the decimal point not be transmitted as well.

Please confirm if the decimal point should not (or should) be sent when processing an 834 file.

Submitter Assigned Keywords

834, ICD-9/ICD-10, ICD Codes

Response

The guide is silent on the intent of the decimal point. The code source is the authority on how the ICD codes should be coded.
