Claim ID

SAS Name

This is the unique identification number for the claim.

Each Part A or institutional Part B claim has at least one revenue center record.

Each non-institutional Part B claim has at least one claim line.

All revenue center records or claim lines on a given claim have the same CLM_ID. It is used to link the revenue lines together and/or to the base claim.


The CLM_ID is assigned by the CCW. The CLM_ID is specific to the CCW and is not applicable to any other identification system or data source.

Limitation: When pulled directly from the CCW database, this is a numeric column.
