Service Code Correct Format


Good afternoon,

I am new to your website. I start practice July 1st. I have some questions:

1. When I enter a billing code example: A945 for Special Palliative Care
Consultation it indicates:
Error : Invalid service code. Service code must be 5 characters long and
end with either A, B or C

I can't understand where the fifth character comes from. All my Billing
code information only indicates 4. What is the 5th character I must enter
to make my submission valid?

Thank you,

Hi C,

Thank you for your email.

You will need to include the suffix (A, B, C) in the service codes (e.g. A945A).

Please note that B suffix is for surgical assistant services and C suffix is for anesthesia services. A suffix is for the others.

Best regards.
