I would ignore (not process) this "Dependent#" field.

I did some checking, and it seems in BC a corner case about the "00" being 
instead "66". The provision to designate newborns (as dependent "66" and, in 
the case of multiple births, "64" ... "63") seems now obsoleted by the ability 
of the hospital to log into the provincial system and generate a new Personal 
Health Number. Any such legacy values in Medical Manager would not be to drive 
the slave.

The PHN can therefore be taken as unique *within* carrier ID. While the 
following may be bar fetched, there is no agreement between Canada's provinces 
to avoid collisions, so it could be possible to exist

        BC.CA MOH |  Personal Health Number | 90123456780
        ON.CA MOH | Personal Health Number | 90123456780

Despite that it is exceedingly unlikely to encounter a duplicate numeric 
belonging to different people, the search should be for a match on

        "Carrier ID" concat \
        right_trim("PHN") <--- note in the case of other provinces, could be < 
10 characters, space-filled


        LEFT_2_CHARS(dem.enum_ext_id_types.issuer) concat \

... exceo
