The NDC (National Drug Code) is a unique product identifier issued by the FDA for drugs intended for human use. Certain insurance companies require that when a drug is reported on a claim, the NDC information must also be attached to that claim. The NDC must be 11-digits long on a claim; to know how to set this, please see our NDC Formats guide. Within OfficeEMR there are two ways to set up the NDC to transmit electronically on a claim: at the Claim Level or at the Code Level.
- Right click in any procedure code box and select NDC from the menu. The NDC box will open.
- Select the code which requires an NDC and then complete the NDC section. Select the appropriate unit type from the drop down box and save.
- All fields (except Rx ID) MUST be completed or claims will reject for incomplete information.
