Add the HIPAA 834 318 and 277DRA transaction to the HIPAA pack

The state of New York is requiring insurance carriers to use the 834X318 and 277DRA transactions. These transactions are currently not in the HIPAA pack. This will cause compliance checking not to work and the mapping type tree is not available for mapping these transactions.

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

As stated in the description this will be used to connect with the State of New York to send eligibility and claims data back and forth.

    In the process of reconsidering - any feedback from HIPAA customers as to the need for this would be appreciated.
