When a claim is selected for possible TPE review, it will go into an S B6000 location in Direct Data Entry (DDE). When the claim goes to this location there will be narrative that indicates the claim was selected and documentation is requested. However, you should not respond with medical documentation unless the claim moves to S B6001 location. When a claim goes into S B6001 location, it generates an ADR and it will hold in that location until the records are received.
Claims initially suspended into location S B6000 may not advance to S B6001 for review and could be released for processing without review. Only claims that are selected for review will move from S B6000 to S B6001. Do not send in medical documentation unless the claim suspends to location S B6001, when the ADR will be generated.
