Back  RFI # 290: 834 Loop 2310 REF01 qualifier

Description

A trading partner of mine is reading Loop 2320 Additional Coordination of
Benefits Identifiers REF02 as a Mutually Defined field if they use the
REF01 ZZ qualifier and they want to use it to identify a Carrier Code
which is unique to the trading partner.
I read the IG as using the ZZ qualifier because no qualifier is available
to denote the National Individual Identifier and ZZ is a place holder
until one is defined and the field cannot be used for another purpose.
Can anyone shed some light on this and regardless of which interpretation
is correct

Response

This issue is explicitly addressed in guide 004010X095. The implementation note in loop 2320, REF segment, element 01, code ZZ reads "Mutually Defined, will be used in this REF01 for National Individual Identifier until a standard code is defined."

Any use of code "ZZ" at this location for a different purpose is not consistant with this implementation.
