Prescription Drug Event - PDE Processing
In our efforts to reduce the backlog of Prescription Drug Event (PDE) files that can occur after CMS places PDE processing within the Drug Data Processing System on hold for the month of July, CMS will continue PDE processing during the month of July. Please note PDE reject edit code 792 has been created that will reject any PDEs with dates of service within a benefit year that is presently being reconciled. The edit begins Monday, July 1, 2020 and will reject any PDEs submitted with dates of service in benefit year 2019. Notification will be distributed when benefit year 2019 PDEs may be resubmitted. In order to prevent receiving this rejection, it is suggested that 2019 PDE submissions be placed on hold for the month of July. For additional information regarding this process, please refer to the April 21, 2015 HPMS memorandum titled “May 2015 Updates to the Drug Data Processing System.”
