Box 43 - Revenue Code Description

  • Updated

Box Definition

Box 43 displays a description or standard abbreviation for the revenue code shown in Box 42 on the same line. This field is not required. Revenue code descriptions are commonly assigned by the payer when the claim file is accepted for processing.

  4. Click on the billing profile name to open the contents.
  5. Select to make a Baseline or Scheduled Change Set edit to the Claim Form Service Name.
  6. Enter the revenue code description, then click Save.
