Back  RFI # 415: Group/Policy Number Reporting

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Barbara Sesny


There are 3 levels at which this can be reported in the 834. BCBSM is requesting a clarification of the intent of the note associated with REF01 for qualifier 1L in the 2000 loop. It is our understanding from reading the note that the submitter of the 834 should report values assigned by the payer. Our trading parter is interpreting this note assuming that the payer should add their assigned data once the transaction is received.


The intent of the note is to indicate that the payer is responsible for the assignment of the value that would be placed in the element by the submitter.


Have a discussion with your trading partner and come to an agreement about where and how the information required for you to conduct business will be supplied.
