Back  RFI # 389: Breaking up 270 requests

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Patricia Van Dyke


I cannot find clear direction in the IG for this: We are receiving a 270 request file. Because the eligibility and benefit data resides on two different systems our programmers want to split the 270 request once it is in house and send only the requests associated with that system to the system. They want to send back 2-271 responses (2 ST/SEs within a file) rather than reassemble the 271 response to match the original 270 inquiry. I don't see in the IG that one cannot do this---what is the intent?
