  1. 2000A Loop Mandatory
    Repeat 1
    1. To identify dependencies among and the content of hierarchically related groups of data segments

      This segment indicates the information source hierarchical level. The information source corresponds to the source of the notification or information copy.
    2. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

      Required when the notification cannot be processed at a system or application level based on the trading partner information contained in the Functional Group Header (GS). If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
    3. 2010A Loop Mandatory
      Repeat 2
      1. To supply the full name of an individual or organizational entity

        This NM1 loop identifies the notification sender. In most cases, the sender is the same entity as the information source. The information source is the entity that determined the outcome of a health services review or the owner of the information. If the sender is not the same entity as the information source, use the first NM1 loop to identify the information sender and the second NM1 loop to identify the information source.
        The second NM1 loop is required when the sender is not the same entity as the information source. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
      2. To specify identifying information

        Required when valued on the notification and used by the receiver to identify the information source or sender. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
      3. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

        Use this segment to convey rejection information regarding the entity;that initiated a notification or information copy transaction.
        Required when the notification is not valid at this level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
      4. To specify the identifying characteristics of a provider

        Required when used by the information receiver to identify the information source. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
    4. 2000B Loop Optional
      Repeat 1
      1. To identify dependencies among and the content of hierarchically related groups of data segments

        This segment indicates the health care services review information receiver. The information receiver is the entity that received the notification.
        Required when this loop is used. If the information receiver's system processed any of the information contained in Loop 2000B of the notification, the acknowledgment must return Loop 2000B. If the information receiver's system was unable to process any data beyond Loop 2000A of the notification, then Loop 2000B is not used. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
      2. 2010B Loop Mandatory
        Repeat 1
        1. To supply the full name of an individual or organizational entity

          This NM1 loop identifies the notification receiver.
        2. To identify a person or office to whom administrative communications should be directed

          When the communication number represents a telephone number in the United States and other countries using the North American Dialing Plan (for voice, data, fax, etc), the communication number should always include the area code and phone number using the format AAABBBCCCC. Where AAA is the area code, BBB is the telephone number prefix, and CCCC is the telephone number (e.g. (534)224-2525 would be represented as 5342242525). The extension, when applicable, should be included in the communication number immediately after the telephone number.
          Required when the information source must direct requests for follow-up to a specific contact, electronic mail, facsimile, or phone number. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
        3. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

          Use this AAA segment to report the reasons why the information receiver cannot receive the notification at a system or application level based on the information source identified in Loop 2010A.
          Required when the notification is not valid at this level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
      3. 2000C Loop Optional
        Repeat 1
        1. To identify dependencies among and the content of hierarchically related groups of data segments

          This segment indicates the subscriber hierarchical level. The subscriber could also be the patient. If the subscriber is the patient, then the dependent hierarchical level (Loop 2000D) is not used.
          Required when the information receiver has detected no errors at the parent level (Loop 2000B) of the notification. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
        2. To uniquely identify a transaction to an application

          Any trace numbers provided at this level on the notification must be returned by the information receiver at this level of the 278 acknowledgment response if one is returned.
          If the 278 notification transaction passes through more than one clearinghouse, the second (and subsequent) clearinghouse may choose one of the following options: If the second or subsequent clearinghouse needs to assign their own TRN segment they may replace the received TRN segment belonging to the sending clearinghouse with their own TRN segment. Upon returning a 278 acknowledgment to the sending clearinghouse, they must remove their TRN segment and replace it with the sending clearinghouse's TRN segment. If the second or subsequent clearinghouse does not need to assign their own TRN segment, they should merely pass all TRN segments received in the 278 acknowledgment transaction.
          If the 278 notification passes through a clearinghouse that adds their own TRN in addition to an information source TRN, the clearinghouse will receive an acknowledgment from the information receiver containing two TRN segments that contain the value "2" (Referenced Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the information receiver has assigned a TRN, the information receiver's TRN will contain the value "1" (Current Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the clearinghouse chooses to pass their own TRN values to the information source, the clearinghouse must change the value in their TRN01 to "1" because, from the information source's perspective, this is not a referenced transaction trace number.
          Required when this loop is returned and the notification contained a tracking number at this level on the notification, or if the receiver or clearinghouse assigns a trace number to this patient event in the acknowledgment for tracking purposes. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
        3. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

          Use this AAA segment to identify the reasons why the notification could not be received based on the contents of the HI Subscriber Diagnosis segment or the DTP date segments in Loop 2000C of the notification.

          2. To specify identifying information

            Health Insurance Claim (HIC) Number or Medicaid Recipient Identification Number is to be provided in the NM1 segment as a Member Identification Number when it is the primary number a UMO knows a member by (such as for Medicare or Medicaid). Do not use this segment for the Health Insurance Claim (HIC) Number or Medicaid Recipient Identification Number unless they are different from the Member Identification Number provided in the NM1 segment.
            Required when valued on the notification and used by the information receiver to identify the Subscriber or when REF01 = "EJ" (Patient Account Number) is valued on the notification. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
          3. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

            Required when the notification is not valid at this level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
          4. To supply demographic information

            Required when valued on the notification and birth date (DMG02) or gender (DMG03) was used by the information receiver to identify the subscriber. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
          5. To provide benefit information on insured entities

            Required when the subscriber's role in the military is used by the information receiver to identify the subscriber. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
        6. 2000D Loop Optional
          Repeat 1
          1. To identify dependencies among and the content of hierarchically related groups of data segments

            Required segments in this loop are required only when this loop is used.
            Required when valued on the notification and the information receiver has detected no errors at the parent level (Loop 2000C) of the notification. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
          2. To uniquely identify a transaction to an application

            Any trace numbers provided at this level on the notification must be returned by the information receiver at this level of the 278 acknowledgment response if one is returned.
            If the 278 notification transaction passes through more than one clearinghouse, the second (and subsequent) clearinghouse may choose one of the following options: If the second or subsequent clearinghouse needs to assign their own TRN segment they may replace the received TRN segment belonging to the sending clearinghouse with their own TRN segment. Upon returning a 278 acknowledgment to the sending clearinghouse, they must remove their TRN segment and replace it with the sending clearinghouse's TRN segment. If the second or subsequent clearinghouse does not need to assign their own TRN segment, they should merely pass all TRN segments received in the 278 notification in the 278 acknowledgment response transaction.
            Required when this loop is returned and the notification contained a tracking number at this level on the notification, or if the receiver or clearinghouse assigns a trace number to this patient event in the acknowledgment for tracking purposes. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
            If the 278 notification passes through a clearinghouse that adds their own TRN in addition to an information source TRN, the clearinghouse will receive an acknowledgment from the information receiver containing two TRN segments that contain the value "2" (Referenced Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the information receiver has assigned a TRN, the information receiver's TRN will contain the value "1" (Current Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the clearinghouse chooses to pass their own TRN values to the information source, the clearinghouse must change the value in their TRN01 to "1" because, from the information source's perspective, this is not a referenced transaction trace number.
          3. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

            Use this AAA segment to identify the reasons why the notification could not be processed based on the contents of the HI Dependent Diagnosis Segment or the DTP date segments in Loop 2000D of the notification.
            Required when the notification is not valid at this level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.

            1. To supply the full name of an individual or organizational entity

              This segment conveys the name of the dependent who is the patient.
              NM108 and NM109 are situational on the acknowledgment but Not Used on the notification. This enables the information receiver (UMO for example) to return a unique member ID for the dependent that was not known to the information source at the time of the review. Normally, if the dependent has a unique member ID, Loop 2000D is not used.
            2. To specify identifying information

              Required when valued on the notification and used by the information receiver to identify the Subscriber or when REF01 = "EJ" (Patient Account Number) is valued on the notification. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
            3. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

              Required when the notification is not valid at this level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
            4. To supply demographic information

              Required when valued on the notification and birth date (DMG02) or gender (DMG03) was used by the information receiver to identify the patient. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
            5. To provide benefit information on insured entities

              Required when valued on the notification and used by the information receiver to identify the patient. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
          6. 2000E Loop Optional
            Repeat >1
            1. To identify dependencies among and the content of hierarchically related groups of data segments

              Required when the information receiver has detected errors at the patient event or subsequent service levels of the notification or when a receipt number is assigned at the event level of a received notification. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
              Loop 2000E identifies information about the patient event and includes specific person, group practice, facility, or specialty entity providing services.
              Patient event information identified at the 2000E loop applies to all subsequent 2000F service loops. Values entered at a specific 2000F service loop override 2000E patient event information for that 2000F service loop only.
            2. To uniquely identify a transaction to an application

              Required when this loop is returned and the notification contained a tracking number at this level on the notification, or if the information source or clearinghouse assigns a trace number to this patient event in the acknowledgment for tracking purposes. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
              Any trace numbers provided at this level on the notification must be returned by the information sender at this level of the 278 notification.
              If the 278 notification transaction passed through more than one clearinghouse, the second (and subsequent) clearinghouse may choose one of the following options: If the second or subsequent clearinghouse needs to assign their own TRN segment they may replace the received TRN segment belonging to the sending clearinghouse with their own TRN segment. Upon returning a 278 acknowledgment to the sending clearinghouse, they must remove their TRN segment and replace it with the sending clearinghouse's TRN segment. If the second or subsequent clearinghouse does not need to assign their own TRN segment, they should merely pass all TRN segments received in the 278 acknowledgment transaction.
              If the 278 notification passed through a clearinghouse that adds their own TRN in addition to the information source's TRN, the clearinghouse will receive an acknowledgment from the information source containing two TRN segments that contain the value "2" (Referenced Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the information source has assigned a TRN, the information source's TRN will contain the value "1" (Current Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the clearinghouse chooses to pass their own TRN values to the acknowledgment's information receiver, the clearinghouse must change the value in their TRN01 to "1" because, from the information receiver's perspective, this is not a referenced transaction trace number.
            3. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

              Required when the notification is not valid at this level. If not required by this implementation guide do not send.
            4. To specify health care services review information

            5. To specify the outcome of a health care services review

              Required when this segment is valued on the notification at the event level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
              If this segment is used, the values in the segment must echo the values contained in the same segment of the notification.
              If the acknowledgment contains Service level information (Loop 2000F) where the HCR segment is valued, the HCR values at the Service level override the HCR values at the Patient Event level for that service only.
            6. To specify identifying information

              Required when the information source of the acknowledgment transaction assigns an administrative reference number at the event loop level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
              This is the administrative number assigned by the Information Sender in an acknowledgment to the original notification at the event level. This is not the trace number assigned by the Information Receiver.
            7. To specify identifying information

              Required when valued on the notification at the Event Level or if the acknowledgment information sender has determined that the event level notification is a duplicate of a previously received event notification that has an assigned certification number.

              1. To identify dependencies among and the content of hierarchically related groups of data segments

                Required when the information receiver has detected errors at this level of the notification, or assigns a receipt number to each service level on the notification that it receives. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
              2. To uniquely identify a transaction to an application

                Required when this service level is returned and any trace numbers were provided at this level on the notification, or if the information receiver or clearinghouse assigns a trace number to this service in the acknowledgment for tracking purposes. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
                Any trace numbers provided at this level on the notification must be returned by the information receiver at this level of the 278 notification.
                If the 278 notification transaction passed through more than one clearinghouse, the second (and subsequent) clearinghouse may choose one of the following options: If the second or subsequent clearinghouse needs to assign their own TRN segment they may replace the received TRN segment belonging to the sending clearinghouse with their own TRN segment. Upon returning a 278 acknowledgment to the sending clearinghouse, they must remove their TRN segment and replace it with the sending clearinghouse's TRN segment. If the second or subsequent clearinghouse does not need to assign their own TRN segment, they should merely pass all TRN segments received in the 278 acknowledgment transaction.
                If the 278 notification passed through a clearinghouse that adds their own TRN in addition to the information source's TRN, the clearinghouse will receive an acknowledgment from the information source containing two TRN segments that contain the value "2" (Referenced Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the information source has assigned a TRN, the information source's TRN will contain the value "1" (Current Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the clearinghouse chooses to pass their own TRN values to the acknowledgment's information receiver, the clearinghouse must change the value in their TRN01 to "1" because, from the information receiver's perspective, this is not a referenced transaction trace number.

                Required if this segment is valued on the notification and the notification contains a value in HCR02 and the service level is returned in the acknowledgment. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
                If this segment is used, the values in HCR01 and HCR02 must echo the values contained in the same data elements of the notification.
              6. To specify identifying information

                Required when valued on the notification at the Service Level or if the information receiver has determined that this service level notification is a duplicate (AAA03 = 91) of a previously received service review notification that has an assigned certification number. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
              7. To specify identifying information

                Required when the information receiver assigns a separate administrative reference number to acknowledge receipt of each service loop contained in a notification. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
                This number can be used by the information Source on notifications when UM02 = 3, 4, R, S. to reference previous Acknowledgments.
                This is the administrative number assigned by the Information Receiver in acknowledgment to the original notification associated with this service level. This is not the trace number assigned by the Information Receiver.

                1. To supply the full name of an individual or organizational entity

                  Required when valued on the notification and the notification is not valid at this segment. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
                  Use this segment to return the name and identification number of the service provider (person, group, or facility) or the specialty entity that was not valid at this level.
                2. To specify identifying information

                  Required when used by the Information Receiver to identify the Patient Event Provider and the notification is not valid at this level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
                3. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

                  Required when the request is not valid at this level to indicate the data condition that prohibits processing of the Notification, or Information Copy. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
                4. To specify the identifying characteristics of a provider

                  Required when used by the Information Receiver to identify the provider and the notification is not valid at this level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
        7. 2000E Loop Optional
          Repeat >1
          1. To identify dependencies among and the content of hierarchically related groups of data segments

            Required when the information receiver has detected errors at the patient event or subsequent service levels of the notification or when a receipt number is assigned at the event level of a received notification. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
            Loop 2000E identifies information about the patient event and includes specific person, group practice, facility, or specialty entity providing services.
            Patient event information identified at the 2000E loop applies to all subsequent 2000F service loops. Values entered at a specific 2000F service loop override 2000E patient event information for that 2000F service loop only.
          2. To uniquely identify a transaction to an application

            Required when this loop is returned and the notification contained a tracking number at this level on the notification, or if the information source or clearinghouse assigns a trace number to this patient event in the acknowledgment for tracking purposes. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
            Any trace numbers provided at this level on the notification must be returned by the information sender at this level of the 278 notification.
            If the 278 notification transaction passed through more than one clearinghouse, the second (and subsequent) clearinghouse may choose one of the following options: If the second or subsequent clearinghouse needs to assign their own TRN segment they may replace the received TRN segment belonging to the sending clearinghouse with their own TRN segment. Upon returning a 278 acknowledgment to the sending clearinghouse, they must remove their TRN segment and replace it with the sending clearinghouse's TRN segment. If the second or subsequent clearinghouse does not need to assign their own TRN segment, they should merely pass all TRN segments received in the 278 acknowledgment transaction.
            If the 278 notification passed through a clearinghouse that adds their own TRN in addition to the information source's TRN, the clearinghouse will receive an acknowledgment from the information source containing two TRN segments that contain the value "2" (Referenced Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the information source has assigned a TRN, the information source's TRN will contain the value "1" (Current Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the clearinghouse chooses to pass their own TRN values to the acknowledgment's information receiver, the clearinghouse must change the value in their TRN01 to "1" because, from the information receiver's perspective, this is not a referenced transaction trace number.
          3. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

            Required when the notification is not valid at this level. If not required by this implementation guide do not send.

          5. To specify the outcome of a health care services review

            Required when this segment is valued on the notification at the event level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
            If this segment is used, the values in the segment must echo the values contained in the same segment of the notification.
            If the acknowledgment contains Service level information (Loop 2000F) where the HCR segment is valued, the HCR values at the Service level override the HCR values at the Patient Event level for that service only.
          6. To specify identifying information

            Required when the information source of the acknowledgment transaction assigns an administrative reference number at the event loop level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
            This is the administrative number assigned by the Information Sender in an acknowledgment to the original notification at the event level. This is not the trace number assigned by the Information Receiver.
          7. To specify identifying information

            Required when valued on the notification at the Event Level or if the acknowledgment information sender has determined that the event level notification is a duplicate of a previously received event notification that has an assigned certification number. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
          8. To specify any or all of a date, a time, or a time period

            Use this segment for the valid date(s) during which this event can occur. If not required, do not send.

            Use this segment for the date when the certification was issued.
            Required when valued on the notification and the notification is not valid at this level. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
          12. To specify any or all of a date, a time, or a time period

            1. To identify dependencies among and the content of hierarchically related groups of data segments

              Required when the information receiver has detected errors at this level of the notification, or assigns a receipt number to each service level on the notification that it receives. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
            2. To uniquely identify a transaction to an application

              Required when this service level is returned and any trace numbers were provided at this level on the notification, or if the information receiver or clearinghouse assigns a trace number to this service in the acknowledgment for tracking purposes. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
              Any trace numbers provided at this level on the notification must be returned by the information receiver at this level of the 278 notification.
              If the 278 notification transaction passed through more than one clearinghouse, the second (and subsequent) clearinghouse may choose one of the following options: If the second or subsequent clearinghouse needs to assign their own TRN segment they may replace the received TRN segment belonging to the sending clearinghouse with their own TRN segment. Upon returning a 278 acknowledgment to the sending clearinghouse, they must remove their TRN segment and replace it with the sending clearinghouse's TRN segment. If the second or subsequent clearinghouse does not need to assign their own TRN segment, they should merely pass all TRN segments received in the 278 acknowledgment transaction.
              If the 278 notification passed through a clearinghouse that adds their own TRN in addition to the information source's TRN, the clearinghouse will receive an acknowledgment from the information source containing two TRN segments that contain the value "2" (Referenced Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the information source has assigned a TRN, the information source's TRN will contain the value "1" (Current Transaction Trace Number) in TRN01. If the clearinghouse chooses to pass their own TRN values to the acknowledgment's information receiver, the clearinghouse must change the value in their TRN01 to "1" because, from the information receiver's perspective, this is not a referenced transaction trace number.
            3. To specify the validity of the request and indicate follow-up action authorized

            5. To specify the outcome of a health care services review

              Required if this segment is valued on the notification and the notification contains a value in HCR02 and the service level is returned in the acknowledgment. If not required by this implementation guide, do not send.
              If this segment is used, the values in HCR01 and HCR02 must echo the values contained in the same data elements of the notification.
            6. To specify identifying information

              Required when valued on the notification at the Service Level or if the information receiver has determined that this service level notification is a duplicate (AAA03 = 91) of a previously received service review notification that has an assigned certification number.
