EDI 5010 Documentation 837 Professional - Loop 2010AA Billing Provider

2010AA Billing Provider
        
Although the name of this loop/segment is “Billing Provider” the loop/segment really identifies the billing entity. The billing Entity does not have to be a health care provider to use this loop.This loop information is same as CMS 1500 Form Box No 33 and Box No 25 as you can see below picture.

Before going to detail, I recommend to understand the Concept of NPI, Provider billing with Individual NPI and Provider Billing with Group NPI.  Please refer this URL for better understanding or download this document.
The following things should be available in the PMS application to handle this loop correctly.
  • In the Provider profile, there should be option to specify whether claims for this provider should go as “Bill with Individual NPI” or Bill with Group NPI.
  • Some times provider may register with insurance company via SSN or Tax ID. So this option should be part of the Provider profile.
  • Optionally, you can have override option for the above two by insurance, by location.

  • You can see an
    example here from in one of my PMS Application.

    The NM1 segment reports the organizational name of the Billing Entity.   The first part of this segment is the Entity ID code.  The Billing Provider Entity ID code is 85.  The next element is the Entity Type Qualifier.  The Entity Type Qualifier will be a 1 if the entity is setup as a Person and 2 if the Entity Type is set up as a Non Person.  The Next Part of the segment is the Name of the Entity.  If the Entity is a person it will report the last name, first name and middle name.

    Billing Entity is Practice
    If the practice is enrolled with the insurance company under the practice name then claims need to be sent with the Practice Name as the billing entity. 
    Example:  Dr. Robert Jones is enrolled at Medicare under the name of his practice Jones Chiropractic.  Medicare will want to see Jones Chiropractic in Loop 2010AA NM1 segment.  They will want the name of the doctor to report in Loop 2310B NM1 segment.

    Billing Entity is Provider If the provider is enrolled with the Insurance Company under the provider’s name alone then the provider’s name needs to be sent in Loop 2010AA NM1 segment. 
    Example: Dr. Jones is enrolled at Aetna under his name Robert J Jones. Aetna will want Robert J Jones to report in Loop 2010AA NM1 segment.

    Now let’s start the detail implementation.

    2010AA Billing Provider Address

    According to HIPAA 5010, a Loop 2010AA Billing Provider Address must not contain the following exact phrases: “Post Office Box”, “P.O. BOX”, “PO BOX”, “LOCK BOX”, “LOCK BIN” or “P O BOX”. The Loop 2010AA Billing Provider Address must be a physical address. This rule applies to dental, professional, and institutional claims. But the paper 1500 form is not subject to HIPAA compliance restrictions.

    Now let’s start the detail implementation.

    2010AA Billing Provider City/State/Zip code
    In the version 5010A1 format, a change has been made to include the full 9-digit ZIP Code for the Billing Provider (2010AA loop for ANSI claims). Providing all zeros in the 4-digit extension will cause front end rejections.The best practice is to capture the 9-digit ZIP code in the practice management system.

      in your example, ZIP code is without hyphen 112348888. but in use case its with hyphen 11234-8888 in N403
      why there is a difference of hyphen?
