Revenue codes

Stephnaie Posted Thu 09th of October, 2014 16:56:43 PM

Where/how can I obtain a complete copy of revenue codes for UB04 billing? We cannot find a comprehensive resource. Any suggestions?
Thank you.

Thank you for your question. Please see information from Medicare below regarding Revenue Codes and where to find a listing:

http://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Guidance/Manuals/downloads/clm104c25.pdf

FL 42
-
Revenue Code
Required
. The provider enters the appropriate revenue codes from the following list to
identify specific accommodation and/or ancillary charges. It must enter the appropriate
numeric revenue code on the adjacent line in FL 42 to explain each charge in FL 47.
Additionally, there is no fixed “Total” line in the charge area. The provider must entermrevenue code 0001 instead in FL 42. Thus, the adjacent charges entry in FL 47 is the sum of charges billed. This is the same line on which non- covered charges, in FL 48, if any,are summed. To assist in bill review, the provider must list revenue codes in ascending numeric sequence and not repeat on the same bill to the extent possible. To limit the number of line items on each bill, it should sum revenue codes at the “zero” level to the extent possible.

Codes used for Medicare claims are available from Medicare contractors. Codes are also
available from the NUBC (www.nubc.org) via the NUBC’s Official UB-04 Data
Specifications Manual.
