UB-04 Codes

UB-04 data files in TXT (Plain Text), CSV, and XLS (Excel) formats.

What's included:

  • Single User Liscense to all official UB-04 codes
  • UB-04 code data files in TXT, CSV, and XLS formats

Multiple Users

If you need to purchase more than one user license, adjust the quantity added to the cart. For example, if you need five user licenses, set the quantity to 5 and add the codes to the cart. Alternatively, you can adjust the number of licenses in your shopping cart under the "Licenses" column.

For licensing purposes, an individual is a "User" if he or she directly accesses the data either in the original data file or through an application that has imported the data.  In the case where CPT is embedded in an application and not directly accessible, if the individual relies on the embedded data to perform his or her intended function with the application or its output, then they are also considered a user.


This data file includes all official UB-04 Codes.

Your BITSCodes subscription will include updates to the UB-04 Codes data if any, at no additional charge during the term of your subscription.

The UB-04 Code data file is raw data and is designed to be loaded into another application like the Free Medical Code ViewerMicrosoft Excel or a Practice Management Software Application that can open or import txt, csv, or xls files.

To provide maximum flexibility and ease of installation, the data file is supplied in the three most common formats: tab delimited (.txt), comma delimited (.csv), and Microsoft Excel format (.xls). Each record includes the CPT code, Description, facility RVUs and non-facility RVUs.

Below is a sample of the data you will receive:
