[Unshared]Warnings Not Supplied This field is inconsistently populated. Although payers were asked to split an individual practitioner's name into its various components, many payers were not able to do so. In those instances the payer name is entirely within the provider last name field (PRVLNAME - DCSP008). When populated this field often contains the generational identifier (JR, SR, III), the credentials (MD, DO, DC) or the suffix to the tax ID. The reporting is not consistent across payers. This is a practitioner identifiable field.
