Back  RFI # 157: INS data validation

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Angela Hendrix


INS06 This element is REQUIRED if a member is being enrolled or disenrolled in Medicare, is currently enrolled in Medicare or has
terminated or changed their Medicare enrollment. (Is this best validated with DTP (Member Level Dates) DTP01 codes 338 and 339?)

INS07 This element is REQUIRED if a member is being enrolled in or is enrolled for a benefit covered by COBRA. (Is this better validated by INS05 = C or if DTP Member Level Date DTP01 = 301, 340, or 341?)

INS enrolled


Since the DTP dates occur after the INS06 element, INS06 would be used to validate the presence of the dates, not the other way around. Since INS05 occurs before INS07, it is the appropriate validator for the INS07 element, and the subsequent related DTP. Inconsistencies between the elements indicate a problem, not which information is correct.
