So this is the first blog post from my phone!
I decided that I might as well find out what diagnosis pointers are (I am rewriting an inbound claim process right now also).
To keep things simple and less EDI’ish we will use the following example.
CLAIM diagnosis codes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
SERVICE: 2, 5, 7
SERVICE: 1, 2, 3, 12
SERVICE: 7
SERVICE: 10, 13

Depending on the claim type, you can have quite a few diagnosis’
The first one listed however is the primary diagnosis code.
Each service line can have 1 up to 4 diagnosis code pointers.
So it really is a many-to-many relationship.
