Revenue Center Status Indicator Code

SAS Name

This variable indicates how the service listed on the revenue center record was priced for payment purposes.

The revenue center status indicator code is most useful with outpatient hospital claims, where multiple methods may be used to determine the payment amount for the various revenue center records on the claim (for example, some lines may be bundled into an APC and paid under the outpatient PPS, while other lines may be paid under other fee schedules).


This 2-byte indicator was added 10/2005 due to an expansion of a field that currently exist on the revenue center trailer. The status indicator is currently the 1st position of the Revenue Center Payment Method Indicator Code. The payment method indicator code is being split into two 2-byte fields (payment indicator and status indicator). The expanded payment indicator will continue to be stored in the existing payment method indicator field. The split of the current payment method indicator field is due to the expansion of both pieces of data from 1-byte to 2-bytes.

This field is populated for those claims that are required to process through outpatient PPS PRICER software. The type of bills (TOB) required to process through are: 12X, 13X, 14X (except Maryland providers, Indian Health Providers, hospitals located in American Samoa, Guam and Saipan and Critical Access Hospitals [CAH]); 76X; 75X and 34X if certain HCPCS are on the bill; and any outpatient type of bill with a condition code '07' and certain HCPCS. These claim types could have lines that are not required to price under OPPS rules so those lines would not have data in this field.

Additional exception: Virgin Island hospitals and hospitals that furnish only inpatient Part B services.
