Reason Codes 39071, 39072, 39073

Published 09/25/2020

This reason code will assign when your claim includes one or more diagnosis codes that match a Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) record on the Common Working File (CWF).

Check the patient's eligibility file to determine whether your services may be related to the MSP record. You can access eServices to view specific diagnosis codes associated with MSP insurance types.

If your services are unrelated to the MSP record, and there is no new accident/injury, submit an adjustment to remove the related diagnosis code(s) from your claim once the claim has moved to R B9997.

If your services are related to the MSP record, submit an adjustment with the appropriate MSP information.
