New BCBSKS 834 Health Care Benefit Enrollments and Maintenance Editing
BCBSKS will be implementing editing on the 834 Health Care Benefit Enrollment and Maintenance transaction.
To ensure BCBSKS receives the most current and accurate information on its members, beginning September 5, 2017 transactions will be rejected for the following:
BCBSKS returns the 999 Industry Standard Acknowledgment for the ANSI X12 834 transaction for each successful submission. The 999 reflects if the ANSI X12 834 transaction was accepted, rejected or accepted with syntax warnings.
With the implementation of these edits a new proprietary BCBSKS 834 Acknowledgment was developed. The BCBSKS 834 Acknowledgment will be available in your "Outbound" folder when your file receives warnings or rejections. The file name is: ACK*filename*dateandtime.txt
All acknowledgments should be downloaded and reviewed after each submission confirming the file was accepted for processing.
