Admissions is used primarily with institutional claims on the UB04, but it may serve other internal
purposes as well. In the column headers, each field is associated with a number. This
number is the field number for the data on the UB04. So the Facility (4) will appear in field
#4 on the UB04.
NOTE: These fields are all yellow because they are required for submission
when using the UB04.
