Tips for 5010 EDI Claims

  • Correct Use of the Date of Service/Onset Date Fields
    • If the onset date is the same as the date of service, leave the onset date field blank. Entering the same date on both the onset field and service field will cause an error.
    • If the onset date is prior to the date of service, enter the two dates in their applicable fields.
  • National Provider Identifier (NPI) vs Social Security Number (SSN)
    • Be sure to use the NPI and not an employer identification nor social security number as the primary identifier on your claim.

Please visit the American Medical Association website or CMS.gov for more information on data reporting changes in the Version 5010 transactions.
