TRN Duplicate Eligibility Trace Number

Response

The information source must process the 270 request when it receives a duplicate eligibility request even when the TRN has the same trace number for both requests. There is no requirement in 005010X279A1 to populate TRN02 with a unique value.

Yes, the information source must process the duplicate request anyway and respond accordingly.

The information source cannot reject the transaction merely because it has received duplicate trace numbers.
