Rejection: Payer Specific Edit: Primary diagnosis code cannot be an E code. (RC162)

What happened: Diagnosis code 1(A) in box 21 cannot be an E (external cause of injury) code.

Resolution: Need to update the claim so diagnosis code 1(A) is not an E code. The code can be used in any other position.
