Back  RFI # 444: BPR01 Interpretation

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

Submitter

Danielle Marquez

Description

When BPR01 equals qualifier code 'I', can the provider populate BPR04 with payment method code 'NON'? Below is an example:

BPR*I*0*C*NON******1161105741******20060827~

Tha payer is stating that there is no where in the HIPAA IG that indicates that 'H" is required when BPR04 is 'NON'.

Response

The note for BPR04 is NON states: "Use this code when the Transaction Handling Code (BPR01) is H, indicating that this is information only
and no dollars are to be moved." Therefore the only time NON can be used is when BPR01 is H. No other BPR01 qualifier is valid.
