Description

We have a payer requesting instructions on how to pay providers with a credit card and report that using the 835. Would the BPR04 "BOP" code value be used for this purpose? Is there any way to use the 835 to instruct a provider to get payment by charging a credit card?

BOP

Response

This issue is not addressed in guide 004010X091. There was no business case
for this situation identified. A BPR04 value of BOP is not appropriate. BOP is financial institution option, when the 835 goes to the Payer's financial institution. Since the guide does not support the elements necessary for a credit (or debit) card transaction, there is no way to instruct the provider to get payment by credit (or debit) card.

Recommendation

A debit EFT is supported by the guide, but should only be considered after discussion with your financial institution.
