Back  RFI # 780: Use of ST03 in 005010 835 TR3

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


David Feinberg


Of the nine HIPAA-adopted version 005010 TR3s, eight specify data element ST03, Implementation Convention Reference, as Required. Only the version 005010 835 HIPAA-adopted TR3, 005010X221, specifies data element ST03 is Not Used.

Was the 835 X221 guide ST03 usage explicitly intended to be Not Used or is that an error?

GS08 is used to report the version. ST03 would be duplicative of the version reported in GS08.


Workgroup 3 recommends that during dual usage, that each functional group (GS-GE) contains the same version, meaning that one functional group contains all 4010A1, and another functional group contains all 5010.

This is a short term problem that may occur during the transition period, but will be evaluated for the next guide.
