The decimal just does not cross over to the payer. It is embedded into the electronic form but the payer does not "see" it. The decimal was put into the system to indicate that the individual codes are extension of the category. The category description is a part of each codes description along with any category rules such as excludes notes. Your system should take care of this for you.
