Return to provider (RTP) reason code 32959 FAQ

Q: I received RTP reason code 32959 stating that an independent federally qualified health center (FQHC) provider is submitting charges on a non-73X or non-77X type of bill (TOB). What steps can I take to avoid this RTP?
A: You received this reason code because independent FQHC providers are only allowed to bill on the 73X TOB. Please verify the provider number and TOB submitted. Correct and resubmit your claim.
