  • Type of bill equals xx7 or xx8 but no condition code is present on the bill. Please include the appropriate condition code of:
    • D0 - Changes to service dates

    • D7 - Change to make Medicare secondary payer
    • D8 - Change to make Medicare primary payer
    • D9 - Any other changes

Explanation and Suggestion
In this instance, the provider is submitting an adjustment (type of bill = xx7) or a paid claim cancellation (xx8), but they have failed to include the claim change condition code (FL 24-30) that explains the adjustment or cancellation.

  • Please add one of the 'condition codes' listed in the reason code narrative to your claim
