Back  RFI # 764: Reporting Member Dates in 834

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Penny Probst


We have a project that requires us to report an effective date for members affected by Michelle's Law (College students on a medical leave from classes). We inititally looked at using the Member Level DTP segment, but did not see an appropriate qualifier. How can this be reported on the 4010A1 834?



This issue isn't explicitly addressed in guide 004010X095. There are two possible locations for this information. Since INS09 will indicate the enrollee is a student, the 2200 loop (Disability Information) can be used to indicate that the enrollee is also disabled as a student. The disability dates would then identify the begin and end dates for this situation. In addition, or as an alternative, the HD04 element can contain text specifically agreed to by the health plan for carrying information related to this situation.


Use the 2200 loop to identify the date(s) related to the student's medical leave from classes and use the HD04 element to specifically carry the term "Michelle's Law", along with any other information specified by the health plan.
