Claims will sometimes require a Service Location Indicator but we suggest that unless you are receiving rejections you should not chooose a SLI code for your claims. Claims requiring a SLI are becoming more frequent and setting this field resolves the common V68 and W4 errors. Effective for claims with service dates of April 1, 2020 and later, when a technical fee is submitted without a Service Location Indicator (SLI) the entire claim will reject to the physician/group error report with the new error condition ‘VHC: SLI REQUIRED FOR TECH FEE’.
In the Settings tab under personal information you can turn on the SLI selector so that claims will have the option to choose an SLI.
|HOP||Hospital out Patient||Patient seen in a hospital but was not admitted (i.e. in clinic).|
|HIP||Hospital in Patient||In patient in a hospital (including ER) or long-term care facility.|
|HED||Hospital Emergency Department||Emergency room patient that is not admitted.|
|OTN||Ontario Telemedicine Network||This doesn't need to be used in IntelAGENT as the app automatically selects this SLI for you behind the scenes when you choose OTN as your facility.|
|IHF||Independent Health Facility||Clinic without a facility number.|
|OFF||Office of Community Physician||Private Office with no facility code.|
|HDS||Hospital Day Surgery||Surgery paitne that is not admitted to the hospital.|
SLI codes are not required for claims submitted under the “RMB” and “WCB” Payment Program Types.
