Suggested Abbreviations When Reporting Additional Documentation Notations in the ANSI and NCPDP Formats
Revised April 19, 2013
NHIC, Corp. has adopted the following list of abbreviations to assist the supplier community when submitting additional documentation information electronically in the HIPAA-compliant format. The data elements in the HIPAA-compliant electronic formats only hold 80 characters for additional documentation notations. As a result, DME MAC Jurisdiction A has adopted the following "suggested list" of abbreviations for suppliers to use in order to maximize the effectiveness of the limited space in the note segments. These abbreviations may be used in the NTE 2400 or NTE 2300 segments in the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) format, and the National Council of Prescription Drug Program (NCPDP) field 498-PP.
This "suggested list" of abbreviations contains the most common types of documentation and notations submitted to Jurisdiction A.
Note: Suppliers should always enter the most pertinent documentation information for the equipment/service being provided.
