Error Types in Professional Claims

Let's consider a case where there's a typo in the claim's diagnosisTypeCode:

{
    "errors": [
        {
            "field": "claimInformation.validHealthCareCodeInformation",
            "description": "First healthCareCodeInformation.diagnosisTypeCode list item value must equal 'BK' or 'ABK' and subsequent values must equal 'BF' or 'ABF'"
        },
        {
            "field": "claimInformation.healthCareCodeInformation[0].validCodeCategory",
            "description": "Allowed Values are: 'BK' International Classification of Diseases Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) Principal Diagnosis, 'ABK' International Classification of Diseases Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) Principal Diagnosis, 'BF' International Classification of Diseases Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) Diagnosis, 'ABF' International Classification of Diseases Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) Diagnosis"
        }
    ]
}

Here is a case where the diagnosisTypeCode is correct, but its associated diagnosisCode is wrong. Here, the API shows the EDI loop where the error can be found and fixed:

{
    "status": "EDITS",
    "controlNumber": "000000001",
    "tradingPartnerServiceId": "9496",
    "claimReference": {
        "correlationId": "201210R999898~2008177834152729",
        "submitterId": "009998999898",
        "customerClaimNumber": "000000001",
        "patientControlNumber": "12345",
        "timeOfResponse": "2020-12-10T18:23:58.559-06:00",
        "claimType": "PRO",
        "formatVersion": "5010"
    },
    "errors": [
        {
            "field": "01-2",
            "value": "46",
            "code": "BK",
            "description": "When entered, the Diagnosis Code must be valid.\n\n
            Note: The decimal point is not allowed in the diagnosis code.\n\n
            LOOP 2300 HI",
            "location": "2300 HI"
        }
    ]
}

Consider a case where a service line chargeable amount has a typo or an incorrect value:

{
    "status": "EDITS",
    "controlNumber": "000000001",
    "tradingPartnerServiceId": "9496",
    "claimReference": {
        "correlationId": "201210R999898~31433371895808763",
        "submitterId": "009998999898",
        "customerClaimNumber": "000000001",
        "patientControlNumber": "12345",
        "timeOfResponse": "2020-12-10T18:59:38.596-06:00",
        "claimType": "PRO",
        "formatVersion": "5010"
    },
    "errors": [
        {
            "field": "02",
            "value": "22.75",
            "description": "The Total Claim Charge Amount must balance to the sum of all the Service Line Charge Amounts.\n\nLOOP 2300 CLM02",
            "location": "2300 CLM"
        }
    ]
}
