There is a need to data mine claims data for a variety of purposes. One of those purposes is to determine what providers are charging for services (the retail charge). This information is often required under state law to be presented to healthcare consumers or used to calculate usual and customary charges by CPT code. The necessity for accurate data is exemplified by the New York State lawsuit that charged a healthcare vendor of innacurately calculating UCR data to the detriment of providers as comingled in this data were charges required by federal or state laws that require the provider to charge amounts other than their true retail charge. The lawsuit resulted in a substantial penalty being assessed to the vendor. Thus, the ability to clearly and accurately know when a particular charge is other than retail is the purpose of this request. Fair Health, created by the State of New York to collect this kind of data, has determined that there is no other way to accurately do that without having the charge in the 837 identified as a retail charge or other than a retail charge. They have a pressing need to get accurate data as soon as possible. Getting the ability to capture this data element(s) to differentiate between retail and non retail, is requested to be included in the 6020 standard.
