Clinics and Other Outpatient Facility Services Handbook : 7. Rural Health Clinic : 7.4 Claims Filing and Reimbursement

7.4 Claims Filing and Reimbursement
General services and copayments are billed using the RHC’s National Provider Identifier (NPI). For all other services, providers must submit claims using their NPI and the appropriate benefit code.
Refer to:
Place of service 72 must be used on all claims when billing for services other than general medical. Benefit code EP1 must be used on claims for THSteps medical services.
Freestanding and hospital-based RHC services must be submitted to TMHP in an approved electronic format or on a UB-04 CMS-1450 paper claim form. Providers may purchase UB-04 CMS-1450 paper claim forms from the vendor of their choice. TMHP does not supply the forms.
When completing a UB-04 CMS-1450 paper claim form, all required information must be included on the claim, as TMHP does not key any information from claim attachments. Superbills, or itemized statements, are not accepted as claim supplements.
