Description

On page 480 of the 837 Professional 4010X098 - 4010X098A1 Combined IG, the LIN02 description defines the N4 qualifier as 'National Drug Code in 5-4-2 Format.' However, on page 478, the example of the LIN segment does not contain dashes in the LIN03. Please verify if the LIN03 should or should not contain dashes.

Response

The LIN03 should report the NDC (codes)without dashes. Please see the example in the LIN segment: LIN**N4*01234567891~ This is the correct representation
