IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Creation of an ANSI X12 type tree that supports Plan Member Reporting.

The transaction is actually an 834 but is different from the 005010X220A1 834 used for Benefit Enrollment and Maintenance.  The GS08 value for this transaction is 005010X318 and the TR3 was releases in November 2016.

What is your industry? Insurance
How will this idea be used?

For a state post adjudication project, this state is requiring that we send enrollment info in order to process our files.    Since they don't need actual benefit data, they want to use the X318 version of the 834 instead of the full blown one containing benefit info.

    ok so how do i get the 005010X318? NYS DOHS is mandating this version for all the medicaid transactions on enrollments?

    005010X318 is an X12N message, but not Not a HIPAA mandated transaction.
