Minnesota Uniform Companion Guides
Version 5010 and D.0

    Minnesota AUC best practices, coding recommendations, and forms
    Minnesota Administrative Uniformity Committee (AUC) best practices are consensus recommendations of the AUC to further standardize and harmonize health care administrative transactions for providers and group purchasers. While adoption or adherence to the best practices is voluntary, it is strongly encouraged to further reduce health care administrative burdens and costs.

    Minnesota AUC coding recommendations are consensus recommendations of the AUC to provide clarification and answers to frequently asked questions about recommended ways to code for health and medical services on the 837I and 837P electronic claim. These coding recommendations are no part of the Minnesota uniform companion guides and do not serve as rules.

    Providers may use Minnesota AUC forms to send claims appeals and attachments to payers. Do not submit these forms to MDH.
