Coding Recommendations

The AUC Medical Code Technical Advisory Group (TAG) provides clarification and answers to frequently asked questions about recommended ways to code for health and medical services and also addresses new code standards pertaining to administrative simplification uniformity in Minnesota.

This work is accomplished formally through the AUC SBAR process.  The AUC SBAR Form (DOC) is completed to request that the AUC consider issues related to administrative simplification or to request clarification of related Minnesota rules and regulations.

SBAR coding decisions recommended by the MCT and approved by the AUC may be recorded in the Minnesota Community Coding Practice/Recommendation Table described below.

The Minnesota Community Coding Practice/Recommendation Table (PDF) (aka Recommendation Grid) is a living document that is intended for use in conjunction with Appendix A of the Minnesota Uniform Companion Guides for the 837 professional and institutional transactions.

The Recommendation Grid is regularly updated with new coding recommendations or clarifications and answers to coding issues SBARs. Coding clarifications in this table may be transferred to the applicable 837P and 837I MUCGs as part of the annual companion guides maintenance.

Updates in the table may stem from quarterly HCPCS coding changes, medical coding in relation to legislative changes; new or revised Medicare rules; and other coding issues as identified.
