Question: I sent in a 5010 claim file and I have not received my 277CA.
Answer: Your file may have rejected on the 999 Functional Acknowledgment. If your file rejected on the 999 report you will not receive a 277CA. You will need to look at the IK5 and IK9 segments of the 999:
|Rejected File:||IK5*R*5 (5 = one or more segments in error)|
This transaction will NOT be forwarded for further processing. The errors will need to be corrected and the file resubmitted.
This transaction will be forwarded for further processing and a 277CA will be generated.
