Chapter 2. Transaction Set

NOTE
See X12 documents X12.5, X12.6, and X12.59 to review transaction set structure, including descriptions of segments, levels, and loops.

2.1 Presentation Examples

The ASC X12 standards are generic. For example, multiple trading communities use the same PER segment to specify administrative communication contacts. Each community decides which elements to use and which code values in those elements are applicable.

This implementation guide uses a format that depicts both the generalized standard and the insurance industry-specific implementation. In this implementation guide, IMPLEMENTATION specifies the requirements for this implementation. X12 STANDARD is included as a reference only.

The transaction set presentation is comprised of two main sections with subsections within the main sections:

2.3 Transaction Set Listing

There are two sub-sections under this general title. The first sub-section concerns this implementation of a generic X12 transaction set. The second sub-section concerns the generic X12 standard itself.

id="wpcBookLinkControl_presentation_examples_5" label="Comment on Common Content Paragraph above" book="cc" page="ch02" forumKey="presentation_examples_5" version="15" runat="server"

This section lists the levels, loops, and segments contained in this implementation. It also serves as an index to the segment detail.

id="wpcBookLinkControl_presentation_examples_6" label="Comment on Common Content Paragraph above" book="cc" page="ch02" forumKey="presentation_examples_6" version="15" runat="server"

This section is included as a reference.

id="wpcBookLinkControl_presentation_examples_7" label="Comment on Common Content Paragraph above" book="cc" page="ch02" forumKey="presentation_examples_7" version="15" runat="server"

2.4 Segment Detail

There are three sub-sections under this general title. This section repeats once for each segment used in this implementation providing segment specific detail and X12 standard detail.

id="wpcBookLinkControl_presentation_examples_8" label="Comment on Common Content Paragraph above" book="cc" page="ch02" forumKey="presentation_examples_8" version="15" runat="server"

This section is included as a reference.

id="wpcBookLinkControl_presentation_examples_9" label="Comment on Common Content Paragraph above" book="cc" page="ch02" forumKey="presentation_examples_9" version="15" runat="server"

This section is included as a reference. It provides a pictorial view of the standard and shows which elements are used in this implementation.

id="wpcBookLinkControl_presentation_examples_10" label="Comment on Common Content Paragraph above" book="cc" page="ch02" forumKey="presentation_examples_10" version="15" runat="server"

This section specifies the implementation details of each data element.

These illustrations (Figures 2.1 through 2.5) are examples and are not extracted from the Section 2 detail in this implementation guide. Annotated illustrations, presented below in the same order they appear in this implementation guide, describe the format of the transaction set that follows.
