If you don't know where the 2300 loop or 2300 NTE ADD fields are in the form you use, contact your software vendor. If your software vendor has additional questions, direct them to call the EDI Helpline.

  1. Enter Claim Frequency Type code (billing code) 7 for a replacement/correction, or 8 to void a prior claim, in the 2300 loop in the CLM*05 03. 
  2. To ensure we process the claim accurately, add a note explaining the reason for the resubmission in loop 2300 NTE (segment) ADD (Qualifier). For example: NTE*ADD* (changed CPT)
  3. Enter the original claim number in the 2300 loop in the REF*F8*.
