Description

Used to identify the patient's care during their hospital stay and help ensure that hospitals are reimbursed accurately for their services.

A data element corresponding with UB-04 form locator FL4 that classifies the claim as to the type of facility (2nd digit), type of care (3rd digit) and the billing record's sequence in the episode of care (4th digit). (Note that the 1st digit is always zero.)

Seemingly these codes are maintained by the NUBC (National Uniform Billing Committee)
