I am preparing to add about 850 procedure codes and fees, MIPS codes, and customized ICD-10 eye related diagnostic codes into the ‘codes’ database by the methods laid out in
When I look at the fields available in this database, I see that there some fields whose significance is not clear. I can easily set these to a value or leave them as defaults, but I’m not sure what to do with them. It would be a whole lot easier to do it through the .CSV spreadsheet than going back to do them individually later.
What is the significance and function of the fields:
And should I preset them, if so to what values? I would think that I would want to set them all to active, reportable, and financially-reportable, but this is not mentioned in the instruction page referenced above. No idea what to use for revenue code.
How does the ‘related_code’ field work? There are some MIPS codes, like those for glaucoma and diabetes where you are always supposed to report two codes together each time. Would the associated code go in this field?
