Back  RFI # 2098: X217-Guide PWK02 AA Qualifier

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

Submitter

Angie Bartlett

Description

In the X217-278 guide, 2000E – Patient Event Level loop, is the AA qualifier limited to teeth/dental information only?

There is a note under the AA qualifier for the PWK02 which states, “Required when using the PWK segment to provide
missing teeth information. This means that the paperwork is not being sent with the request at this time. Instead, it is available to the UMO (or appropriate entity) on request.”

Thank you for the additional clarification.

Response

The PWK02 Qualifier of “AA” is “Required when using the PWK segment to provide missing teeth information.” However, this requirement does not restrict the use of the “AA” qualifier for other instances where the paperwork is not being sent with request at this time. The second note for this qualifier reads, “This means that the paperwork is not being sent with the request at this time. Instead, it is available to the UMO (or appropriate entity) on request.” Therefore, for any other instance where the paperwork is not sent at the time of the request and the additional information is available on request by the UMO PWK02 must be “AA”.
