TA1 Validator
The TA1 Validator validates the Interchange Control Header (ISA segment) and Interchange Control Trailer (IEA segment) of a HIPAA document against specific TA1 technical acknowledgement note codes. This validator automatically generates a TA1, which is an optional response message that a trading partner may require as confirmation that a HIPAA document has been received and accepted.
The supported component version is 1.0.0.
Note:  The TA1 Validator does not verify the functionality of a HIPAA document.
In addition to the interchange control number, date, and time from the incoming HIPAA document, the generated TA1 also contains the following two elements:
Interchange Note Code - Three-digit error code that indicates the result of the HIPAA validation process.
Interchange Acknowledgement Code (ACK) - Character code that indicates the status of the HIPAA document. The possible values are:
A: Accepted)
R: Rejected because of errors; requires the sender to resubmit)
E: Accepted with errors; does not require sender to resubmit)
Note:  If the ISA segment of an incoming HIPAA document is invalid, the TA1 Validator generates an error output message instead of a TA1 message.
If there are multiple errors in the incoming HIPAA document, the TA1 output message contains only the first error.
The following are examples of TA1 output messages:
Example TA1: Accepted
TA1*000011135*020823*0841*A*000
In this example, the "A" and "000" indicate the HIPAA document was accepted with no errors.
Example TA1: Rejected
TA1*000011135*020823*0841*R*022
In this example, the "R" and "022" indicate the HIPAA document was rejected with note code 022, which references an invalid control structure. The sender would have to resubmit the HIPAA document.
