Claim Acknowlegement Report: 277 Format

The 277 format for Claim acknowledgement reports contains more detailed status information about the 'sent' batch than a 997 or 999 format. Support for the 227 format was added in Version 12.3

When a 277 is received:

  • In the Insurance Claims History grid, the corresponding rows for the sent claims have an AckCode column set to 'A' or 'R'. 
  • The 277 also shows as a separate row with a Type of StatusNotify_277. Double click the row to open the Claim Status Response window:

The only information from the above window that gets automatically processed/imported is the claim status column (Accepted or Rejected).
