General Compliance Question of the Week


How are incidental services packaged under the OPPS?


Incidental services are unconditionally packaged and are assigned to a status indicator of N in Addendum B of the OPPS rule. Incidental services are not recognized for payment when they are the only service provided on a date of service. An “incidental only claim” will not process for claims submission.
