Submitter Assigned Keywords

837 principal procedure outpatient institutional


The HI Principal Procedure Information segment is required on Home IV therapy claims or encounters when surgery was performed during the inpatient stay from which the course of therapy was initiated. The HI Principal Procedure Information segment is also required on inpatient claims or encounters when a procedure was performed.

Therefore the answer is no. Submitters are not prohibited from sending the segment for outpatient claims however a receiver cannot require the segment for outpatient claims.
