Back  RFI # 419: CLP01 pt control number

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Dyan Anderson


In crossover 835s, we're finding in some cases that the secondary payer is manipulating the CLP01 pt control number and not echoing back the full originally submitted control number. Is this allowed or should we reject the file?

crossover CLP01 pt control number


CLP01 must contain the patient control number supplied by the provider on the (original) claim. Within the 837 this is the value contained in CLM01. The receiver is required to support a minimum of 20 characters for this element. CLP01 is one of elements needed by the provider for auto-posting. The intent of the authors is that this value is maintained by all payers who handle the 835.
