Update - Type of Bill (TOB) 73X

As of October 12, 2019, CMS updated the Medicare Advantage Front-end System reference data to include Type of Bill (TOB) 73X.

  • Based on guidelines from the National Uniform Billing Committee (NUBC), TOB 73x was discontinued for use by FQHCs in April 2010.
  • However, TOB 73X is still a valid bill type for other types of health clinics and for certain non-Medicare claims.

Submitters can resubmit previously submitted data that was rejected due to use of 73x.

In the event you have questions, please contact CSSC Operations at 1-877-534-2772 (option 2) or by email at csscoperations@palmettogba.com.
