Integrated Billing requires one time access to the IFCAP Item Master file (#441). Prosthetics changed from using the Item Master file as the source of the Prosthetics Item description to using the Prosthetics HCPCS. Integrated Billing is now being updated to correspond to this change in Prosthetics. However for already billed items the bill must not change, therefore for historical purposes, the Item Master description will be pulled and saved with the old/existing billed Prosthetics Items. The Integrated Billing patch IB*2*389 post-init will access the Item Master file to get then store (#362.5,.05) the Item description for every prosthetic item billed at the time of the installation, not directly related to a Patient Item (#660). This agreement will expire at the end of the IB*2*389 compliance date.
