Please provide an interpretation regarding the relationship between the 2400 SV111 and 2300 CRC segment when CRC01=ZZ. Should the 2300 CRC EPSDT Referral segment be required when 2400 SV111 = Y? Required for all patients when SV111 = Y, or just Medicaid patients?


The implementation guide does not establish a semantic relationship between the 2300 EPSDT CRC and the SV111. The EPSDT CRC is required on EPSDT claims. The SV111 is required when Medicaid services are the result of a screening referral.


The patient comes in explicitly to receive the screening. During the screening, the physician determines there may be a vision problem and orders/refers follow-up with an opthamologist. The claim for this visit would include the CRC indicating the visit WAS FOR a screening and a reason code indicating the screening resulted in a referral for additional treatment.

After the opthamologist performed his/her examination, that claim would use SV111 to indicate the line items were provided AS A RESULT OF an EPSDT screening referral. The Opthamologist visit is not considered to be an EPSDT service itself and therefore would not be cause for using the 2300 EPSDT CRC.
