The type of service provided to the beneficiary. 

Comments

This field, in combination with the facility type code (variable called CLM_FAC_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: the facility type (CLM_FAC_TYPE_CD) and the service classification type code (CLM_SRVC_CLSFCTN_TYPE_CD).
