Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

Submitter

LuAnn Hetherington

Description

The Application Reporting for Insurance 824 (005010X186) is a TR3 for use by the Insurance industry, which includes Health Care. Is it permissible to acknowledge this transaction with the Implementation Acknowledgment for Health Care Insurance 999 (005010X231A1)?

Is the 005010X231A1 version of the 999 the required version for use with the 824 versus a standard/Trading Partner created 999?

Response

Yes, it is appropriate and in fact strongly encouraged to respond using the transaction set 999 based on the 999 Implementation Acknowledgment for Health Care Insurance (005010X231A1) TR3 to acknowledge the receipt and syntactic status of a received transaction set 824 based on the 824 Application Reporting for Insurance (005010X186) TR3 contained within a functional group. While there is no requirement to use the 005010X231A1 version of the 999 with the 824 versus a standard/Trading Partner created 999, usage would provide consistency across all health care transactions, which would minimize implementation issues and cost for all trading partners. For additional guidance please refer to the Acknowledgment Reference Model TR2.
