Back  RFI # 26: VALUES IN THE GS SEGMENT

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

Submitter

Todd Cochrane

Description

What values are to appear in fields GS01 (DE 479 Functional Identifier Code and GS08 DE 480 Version /Release/Industry Identifier Code) of the GS segment enclosing a Functional Acknowledgment (Transaction Set 997) used to respond to a received Transaction Set 837.

Response

GS01 (DE 479 Functional Identifier Code) for the enclosed transaction sets which for Transaction Set 997 must be the value "FA". GS08 (DE 480 Version /Release/Industry Identifier Code) applies to the enclosed Transaction Set 997 Functional Acknowledgment. In particular, it does not apply to the transaction set that is being acknowledged, for example TS 837. The Insurance Subcommittee (X12N) has reviewed the referenced implementation guide and has determined that the Industry Identifier Code (value is X098A1) applies only to Transaction Set 837 Health Care Claim. Therefore, GS08 contains only the version and release value, e.g., 004010
