Medicare Error Code
« on: May 01, 2013, 10:27:49 PM »
I bill PT, OT & ST claims to Medicare as an Outpatient Rehab Facility.  I billed a patient who has a dependent HIC number and I received the following error....
Err Code: 05 - Err Desc:  IHL-04S0: INVALID HIERARCHICAL CHILD CODE

Does anyone know what field on the UB04 this belongs in?  I have read information and I should be billing a "0" but don't know where to put it.  Also, does this only pertain to patients with a "D" at the end of their HIC number?  I have been billing for 7 years and I have never seen this error.

Thanks!
