Jeffrey McGuire

Description

I'm have a development issue with the subject segment. In the EB08 element some payers are sending me .25 for 25 percent and some are sending me 25 for 25 percent. I believe .25 is correct per page 229 of the ASC X12N Insurance Subcommittee Implementation Guide, EB08 954 Percent. "Percentage expressed as a decimal". I need a definitive response with which I can go to the clearing house or payer to inform them which they should use.

Response

This issue is explicitly addressed in guide 004010X092 in section 3 on page 229. The description of element EB08 is “Percentage expressed as a decimal”. For example, 25 percent expressed as a decimal is “.25”.
