The messages that meet the search criteria are displayed.

To view the response from Noridian, select the Subject of the message. Conversation "bubbles" will be used to show the message exchange between the user and Noridian. On this screen, the user may:

  1. Reply back to Noridian
  2. Add a Delegate User (if applicable)
    • A Delegate User would be the only user that would be able to see the message between you and Noridian. If a Delegate User is not selected, anyone with access the TIN/NPI/PTAN combination being used would be able to read and respond to the messages.

    • Open: Messages are still being exchanged.
