    anyoen familiar with an MJ Qualifier? UHC needs it in box 24g to indicate anesthesia time. This all sounds new to me....

    The MJ qualifier is part of the ELECTRONIC claim format which informs the clearinghouse/payer that the information in the loop is "minutes" of anesthesia.

    As far as Box 24G this is a field on the PAPER CMS 1500 claim form- total minutes should be entered in this field for anesthesia services submitted to UHC on paper CMS 1500 claims.

    Hope this helps.
