Back  RFI # 593: 278 response in timely manner

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

Submitter

Nadine Farmer

Description

We are an intermediary between the Provider and the actual UMO. The UMO has not responded to a 278 request within the time limit that they specifiy for their responses. Generally, we want to close the 278 response at this time and only provide further updates via an interactive Internet session. How do we format a 278 Response back to the provider to indicate the situation and that the request is closed on our system and there will be no further 278 response by us?

Response

When the UMO has not responded in a timely manner to a 278 request, a 278 response back to the provider can be generated to inform the provider that no further electronic response will be sent and to contact the UMO directly for information. Use the BHT06 code value of 18 (No Further Updates to Follow) and an HCR01 code value of CT (Contact Payer).
