Our clients are reporting the NHRIC code in the 2400 LIN segment.
Would it be possible to add a qualifier and code set for NHRIC codes in the 2400 loop LIN segment of the 837P transaction and any other transaction that could possibly utilize this?
From the FDA:
National Health Related Items Codes (NHRICs) and New Drug Codes (NDCs):
New Drug Codes (NDCs) do not apply to medical devices. Instead, National Health Related Items Codes (NHRICs) are used to uniquely identify medical devices. The NHRIC is comprised of two components - the labeler code and the sequential number. The former is obtained by manufacturer application to the FDA. When this labeler code is obtained, the manufacturer completes the product by assigning a sequential number for the medical device. When this is completed, the manufacturer assumes ultimate responsibility of maintaining the NHRIC number. Below is a link describing NHRICs, as well as the NHRIC database. You may use the latter to search for the NHRIC number.
