Has anyone noticed a new required field when clicking on the pencil to add comments to a claim? The drop down for this "required code" has two options: yes and informed consent. I can only assume this has something to do with a HIPAA release form that clients sign giving us permission to share information with a payor, but am wondering why this is inserted at the claim level and not in a nursing section with client demographics and other information for each client? We have not had a response to an email inquiring what this is. Why would it have anything to do will my role as a biller? All I want to do is add a comment on a denied claim explaining the denial reason.
