I have 2 questions concerning the correct Claim Filing Indicator Code to use for specific Medicare and Medicaid replacement plans.

1. For the Medicare Private Fee for Service products that replace Medicare part A and B, What is the best and industry standard code to use, MB?

2. For Medicaid plus HMO plans, should the CLP06 still use the MC code to denote it is Medicaid or HM to state it is an HMO.

The value should mirror the value received in the original claim (2-005 SBR09 of the 837), if applicable, or provide the value as assigned or edited by the payer. The intent within the 835 for the Claim Filing Indicator Code is to identify the type of contractual relationship that exists related to the claim between the payer and the provider. For Medicare Part A & B that is a legislated relationship and the values are indicated. For Medicare Private Fee for Service products, Medicare is no longer the direct payer. The type of contractual relationship between the payer and the provider must be identified. For example, if that relationship is a PPO, use code 12. For a Medicaid Plus HMO, use HM to identify that payment is made under an HMO contract.
