Attachment indicator

Hi
 

If the Attachment Indicator – Original reported in the IS IDEC file is ‘N’ or ‘P’ but if the billing carrier includes the supporting documents in the supporting documents file, will IS forward the same to the billed carrier.

Dear Shankar,
 
If you mention in the invoice that you will attach supporting documents, SIS will wait 2 days after the period closure to link the attachments to the invoice.
 
If the supporting documents are then not provided, SIS will change the Attachment Indicator from P to N.
 
Supporting Documents can be sent for linking before or after the invoice submission.
 
Best regards

Dear Ashley

Thank you for your reply.

Actually the question was, if attachment indicator is N in IS IDEC but billing carrier sends attachment, will SIS change the indicator to Y in IS IDEC and send the attachment to billed carrier.

Pls clarify.

Hi Shankar,

No, the Attachment Indicator will not change to Y if billing carrier sends the attachment after the IS-IDEC file is sent. The Attachment Indicator will only be Y if files are enclosed with the IS-IDEC.

Bets regards

I am also curious about how SIS will deal with the supporting documents in this case, if SIS file indicates no supporting documents but actually there is one uploaded? Sometimes, it happens in real work.

Hi Binbin,

 

There are three fields that are related to Supporting Documents in the IS-Format. Attachment Indicator - Supplied, Attachment Indicator – Validated, and Number of Attachments. Out of these fields only Attachment Indicator - Supplied is a field that can be provided in the input file. Whatever value is provided in the Attachment Indicator-Supplied field will not be changed by SIS.

 

At the time of output file generation, SIS will check if any supporting document is linked to the transaction. If no then the Attachment Indicator - Validated=N and Number of Attachments=0. If there were attachments provided then Attachment Indicator - Validated = Y and Number of Attachments = the actual number of attachments linked to the transaction.

 

Hope this clarifies,

Best regards
