The Rx Origin Code designates what method the doctor used to send the prescription to the pharmacy. This code is transmitted in field DJ-419. This field is mandatory for many insurances, particularly Medco and Med Impact.
|1 or W||Written|
|2 of T||Telephone|
|3 or L||Electronic|
|4 or F||Facsimile|
Note: A value of 0 is only acceptable on transferred and refilled prescriptions where you cannot determine how the prescription was initially received.
Settings for the Origin Code
We now send the Rx Origin field by default, so there is no setting needed to tell QuickSCRIP to transmit it.
We default the Origin Code to L for Electronic on ALL Surescrips/E-prescribing claims. This overrides any custom settings.
