IS-XML not available in Billing Entity Output File

Dear All, we were asked to "log this requirement on the Forum so that it can be passed on to the Change Control Board for decision".  Brgds, Nicole
 
SPIRA Incident logged during Pilot Test (28-08-2011):
 

Hi All, as mentioned in today’s conference call: The Billing Entity does not receive any IS-XML in its Output File. Additionally it’s not possible to download Outgoing XML-File in IS-WEB.

Therefore the billing entity can never verify, whether the basis IS-XML input file is processed correctly, eg. Footer notes/legal texts are populated corretly from Member Profile.

  • The billed entity receives the Output File. The billing Entity is not able to perform a check on Input XML and Output XML. This could be an issue in regards of external audition.
  •  In case IS-WEB is used to capture invoices/credit notes, fields on LineItemDetail level are not shown on Output PDFs. -Due to ChargeCategory/Code Combination mandatory fields and other fields on Line Item Detail level are populated.- The billing entity has no offline documentation which includes all the details.
  • For some carriers the XML is the legal document. In these cases the IS-XML is needed in Output File for compliance reason.

We ask you to provide XML in the Output File for Billing Entities.
