Rendering Provider Error on Ancillary Electronic Claims

February 10, 2012

We appreciate your patience as we continue to work through issues related to the ANSI Version 5010 implementation.

Recently, ANSI v5010 electronic claims transmitted by Labs, Durable Medical Equipment (DME) suppliers and Independent Diagnostic Testing Facilities (IDTF) providers were rejecting in error.

  • Upon rejection, the error or edit message returned on the electronic report was as follows: 3VS – Rendering Provider Loop (2310B) is missing.
  • This message is incorrect because these technical/component specialty type providers do not need to include rendering NPI information.

This edit was corrected on Jan. 21, 2012. Electronic claims that had rejected prior to Jan. 21, 2012, will need to be resubmitted.

We apologize for the inconvenience this issue may have caused your practice. If you have any questions regarding this notice, please contact our Electronic Commerce Center at 800-746-4614.
