Description

3.5.1. Business Scenario 3-Request for Non-emergency Transportation
This example is confusing as it states there are no subordinate loops yet the next loop example states it is subordinate to the preceding loop. Can you clarify? The 2000F loop example provided states the following regarding the HL Segment Count:
Loop 2000F hierarchical level identifies the services associated with this event. HL*5*4*SS*0~ HL count is 5. This HL is subordinate to HL *4, the parent HL. This HL code is SS, identifying the specific services associated to this request. This HL has no subordinate levels, or children.
SV1*HC:A0428:RX**UN*5~
HL*6*5*SS*0~ HL count is 6. This HL is subordinate to HL *5, the parent HL. This HL code is SS, identifying the specific services associated to this request. This HL has no subordinate levels, or children.
SV1*HC:A0428:PD**UN*8~

Response

The example provided is incorrectly stated with the HL numbering of the HLSS loops. Even though the HL01 values are correct within the example, the HL02 values for the second and third HLSS loops are incorrectly stated. The HL02 value for the second and third HLSS loops should be a ‘4’ that correctly references the parent loop which is the HLEV (Patient Event Loop). All HLSS loops are subordinate to the Patient Event loop. We will correct this example in the next version of the guide.
