Description

In the 2100 (and other) loops values of PS for Prescriptions and VS for Visits. We're re-looking at our mappings and wonder what the PS value should reflect: number of prescriptions submitted on this claim? Is this expected only on Pharmacy claims?

Similarly, for the VS, is this to reflect the number of visits submitted on the claim, the number of visits paid, or some other number that is related to Visits on the claim?

Thank you,
Talitha Pettepher
