Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

Submitter

Kelly Butler

Description

Please advise if it is an appropriate use of the X12 837 guides to utilize the provider suffix field for provider credentialing information such as MD, DO, PHD etc.

Response

The suffix is used to further identify the individual. Since credentialing information does not identify an individual, it should not be sent as a suffix.
