Kim Oberbroeckling

Description

The CMN information is passed at the service line level (2440 loop). On the CMN you are to list all of the procedures that require certification. If there is more than one procedure that requires certification, does the 2440 loop need to be repeated for each procedure (even if the responses are all the same) or can it be sent for the first procedure only?

Response

This issue is explicitly addressed in guide 005010X222. The 2440 loop is specific to a particular service line. If more than one line meets the requirements for inclusion of the 2440 loop, then that loop and the related information must be provided on each of those lines that meet the requirement. That applies even if the information is the same for each service line.

The related 2440 loop LQ segment situational rule reads "Required when adjudication is known to be impacted by one of the types of supporting documentation (standardized paper forms) listed in LQ01. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send."
