Reviewer Code Not Showing?
Is the Reviewer Code not showing in the top right of Intelicode or on the End Screen even though you have all the appropriate information in?  If you go back to the Patient Screen and look at the Service Type/SubService Type list, you might notice a  ‘+’ symbol next to what you selected in this list. This '+' symbol means that this item has more selections available and you need to expand the tree further by clicking the ‘+’ symbol . Select the Service Type/SubService Type needed when the tree is completely expanded for Intelicode to generate the code.
