Note that the first two characters of the submitter code are used to indicate the reporting state and the third character designates the type of submitter. For Rhode Island's APCD collection, valid prefixes include: Notes: A single data submitter may have multiple submitter codes if they are submitting from more than one system or from more than one location. All submitter codes associated with a single data submitter will have the same first six characters. A suffix will be used to distinguish the location and/or system variations. This field contains a constant value and is primarily used for tracking compliance by data submitter. Text 8
Multiple versionsPC002 NAIC Use this field to report, at a record level, the code as assigned by the NAIC that uniquely identifies the applicable insurance plan. If no NAIC number has been assigned, report as "0". Text 5

Multiple versionsPC006 Insured Group or Policy Number Use this field to report the group or policy number. Notes: This is not the number that uniquely identifies the subscriber. The value reported for this field should be consistent with the value reported in the Insured Group or Policy Number fields across all file types (ME006, MC006, PC006).

Notes: The value reported for this field should be consistent with the value reported in ME008 ("Subscriber Social Security Number") in the eligibility file.

Notes: The value reported for this field should be consistent with the value reported in the eligibility file.

Notes: The value reported for this field should be consistent with the value reported in ME014 ("Member Date of Birth") in the eligibility file. This field will be rendered non-recoverable through the use of a one-way hashing algorithm prior to transmission to Onpoint. Immediately prior to hashing this field, Onpoint's hashing application calculates a member's age in months based on the Member Date of Birth field (ME014, MC013, PC013). The Member Date of Birth field is then hashed and both the hashed value and the value- added Age in Months element are submitted to the APCD - the hashed value to allow for quality assurance review, the de-identified Age in Months to enable analytic use of the APCD.
