December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Section 6: Claims Filing : 6.2 TMHP Electronic Claims Submission : 6.2.4 * TMHP EDI Batch Numbers, Julian Dates

All electronic transactions are assigned an eight-character Batch ID immediately upon receipt by the TMHP EDI Gateway. The batch ID format allows electronic submitters to determine the exact day and year that a batch was received. The batch ID format is JJJYSSSS, where each character is defined as follows:
JJJ – Julian date. The three J characters represent the Julian date that the file was received by the TMHP EDI Gateway. The first character (J) is displayed as a letter, where I = 0, J = 1, K = 2, and L = 3. The last two characters (JJ) are displayed as numbers. All three characters (JJJ) together represent the Julian date. For example, a Julian date of 143 would be J43.
Y – Year. The Y character represents the last digit of the calendar year when the TMHP EDI Gateway receives the file. For example, a “2” in this position indicates the year 2012.
SSSS = The unique 4-character sequence number assigned by EDI to the batch filed.
