Ready for Version 5010?

HIPAA 5010Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Regional Offices are hosting a series of webinar on Version 5010 for health care providers, clearinghouses, vendors and others.

Version 5010 refers to the standards that HIPAA-covered entities must use when electronically conducting certain health care administrative transactions, such as claims, remittance, eligibility, and claims status requests and responses.

Health care organizations that submit transactions electronically are required to upgrade from Version 4010/4010A to Version 5010 transaction standards. To be compliant, organizations must use Version 5010 to send and receive claims and all other HIPAA-adopted electronic transactions starting January 1, 2012; however, CMS has implemented an enforcement discretionary period, which is in effect through June 30, 2012. 

Sign up for a free webinar hosted by CMS to learn more about:

  • Current Conversion Statistics
  • Final Preparations for 5010/D.0 Cutover
  • Operational Concerns
  • Future of EDI Communications
  • Resources and Contact Information

The next webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, June 20, 2012, from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm PST.
