  2. Look for and double-click on the encounter that needs correcting.
  3. On the Edit Claim window, double-click on the encounter number.
  4. Under the Procedure section, right-click the header bar and select Customize.
  5. Add the following columns to the Procedure section (click and hold an item, then drag it to the preferred location in the header bar):
    1. Ref. Code
    2. Line Note
  6. Select “ADD” under Ref. Code for the service line that needs correction.
  7. In the Line Note, enter the NOC information for the service line that needs correction.
    1. Enter “NOC” in all caps followed by a space.
    2. After the space, enter NOC information (cannot exceed 76 characters).
  8. Click Save all the way out.

Then, rebill and resubmit all affected claims.
