Response

All information previously submitted in the QTY segment is now supported via Value Codes.
 
The QTY segment is part of the version 005010 Standard but it is not used in the HIPAA adopted TR3s.  The TR3 for the 837 Institutional transaction v005010X223A2 Section 2.3 provides both the X12 Standard as well as the Implementation set(s).  The Implementation transaction set listing is the guideline mandated by HIPAA for these EDI transactions.  The other is for reference.  The QTY segment was never used as part of the 837 Professional transaction.
 
The use of the QTY segment was discontinued with the adoption of version 005010.  The information that was submitted in the QTY segment in version 004010 is now submitted using Code Set 132 published by National Uniform Billing Committee (NUBC) in the 2300 Loop,  HI – Value Information segment.  Please contact NUBC for more information about this Code Set.
