Back  RFI # 353: Service line Service Facility

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Mark McLaughlin


Loop 2310E note 1 states: “Information in Loop ID 2310 applies to the entire claim unless overridden on a service line by the presence of Loop ID 2420 with the same value in NM101.”

The only value allowed in Loop2310E NM101 is “FA – Facility”

There is no subsequent Loop 2420 segment where the NM101 can be equal to “FA”.

How can a Service Facility be reported at the service line level if there is no opportunity to enter the value of "FA" in any service line segement?

2310E Service Line Service Facility


We have identified the 2310E Note 1 as an erroneous note in the 4010A1 guide. The Service Facility loop can only be provided at the claim level for Institutional claims. Corrections have been made in the next version (5010 TR3).
