The regulations implementing these statutes require the collection of information needed to enable OWCP to determine if bills for drugs submitted directly by pharmacies, or as reimbursement requests submitted by claimants, should be paid. (20 CFR 10.801, 30.701, 725.701 and 725.705). There is no standardized paper form for submission of the billing information collected in this ICR. Over the past several years, the majority of pharmacy bills submitted to OWCP have been submitted electronically using one of the industry-wide standard formats for the electronic transmission of billing data through nationwide data clearinghouses devised by the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP). However, since some pharmacy bills are still submitted using a paper-based bill format, OWCP will continue to accept any of the many paper-based bill formats still used by some providers so long as they contain the data elements needed for processing the bill. None of the paper-based or electronic billing formats have been designed by or provided by OWCP; they are billing formats commonly accepted by other Federal programs and in the private health insurance industry for drugs. Nonetheless, the three programs (FECA, BLBA and EEOICPA) provide instructions for the submission of necessary pharmacy bill data elements in provider manuals distributed or made available to all pharmacies enrolled in the programs. The required data elements are used by OWCP and contractor bill processing staff to process paper and electronic bills for drugs dispensed by pharmacies. To enable OWCP and its contractor staff to consider the appropriateness of the requested payment in a timely fashion, it is essential that bill submissions include the data elements needed to evaluate the bill, such as the NDC number and the pharmacy’s provider identification number. To do this, OWCP evaluates the same data elements that are commonly evaluated by other Federal agencies and private health insurance carriers. If all the billing data elements required by OWCP are not VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:10 Jan 18, 2007 Jkt 211001 collected, the contractor staff cannot process the bill. Darrin A.
