"Further Treatment Within 2 Months invalid"

For continuation claims to pass validation with the NHSBSA, there must have been a same band or higher claim submitted under the same contract for the patient with a completion date within 2 months of the start date of this continuation claim.

Continuation claims mean the patient will not be charged for the treatment, but the UDA value will still be received.

There are two main reasons why claims are queried.

  1. It is outside the 2 month window

  2. There was not an appropriate previous claim
