As we publish reimbursement policies, we have adopted a new system for labeling them. The following is a guide to aid you when looking for a specific policy or service:

NDRP = North Dakota Reimbursement Policy

Sections=

ANES – Anesthesia
BH – Behavioral Health
EM – Evaluation and Management
GC – General Coding
LP – Lab and Pathology

001 – Policy Number
001.1 – Policy Number, Revision 1

Example:

NDRP-GC-010 – Provider Overhead Expenses – This policy addresses what is normally considered as included in the service that is being billed. Specifically, the cost of supplies, such as suture removal kits, surgical trays, casting supplies would be considered as included when billing for a service that includes these items.
