ITXA - Need Support for the HIPAA_277CA_Unique_BHT03 Compliance Check Parameter

A new parameter - HIPAA_277CA_Unique_BHT03 - has been added to the set of configurable HIPAA Compliance Check map parameters in the Pack for Healthcare V10.1. This parameter allows Yes and No settings.

For the BHT03 content to function effectively as a control number, we need to be able to specify HIPAA_277CA_Unique_BHT03 = "Y" when HIPAA Compliance Check is invoked from ITXA/SPE De-envelope. The parameter does not need to be trading-partner-specific to meet our needs - it can be a single switch that is activated for the entire implementation perhaps via a configuration file option.

Could the ability to specify a Yes setting for the HIPAA_277CA_Unique_BHT03 parameter and pass it to the HIPAA Compliance Check map be added to the Pack for Healthcare functionality in ITXA?

How will this idea be used?

If this enhancement is implemented in a future product release, we will use that functionality instead of a hard-coded adjustment to the as-delivered code that has been implemented as a work-around.
