The type of facility. 

Comments

This field, in combination with the service classification type code (variable called CLM_SRVC_CLSFCTN_TYPE_CD) indicates the “type of bill” for an institutional claim. Many different types of services can be billed on a Part A or Part B institutional claim, and knowing the type of bill helps to distinguish them.

The type of bill is the concatenation of two variables:

-facility type (CLM_FAC_TYPE_CD)

-service classification type (CLM_SRVC_CLSFCTN_TYPE_CD).
