Final HIPAA Version 5010 Companion Guides Are Ready!

October 28, 2011

If you submit 4010 transactions electronically in batches, this applies to you. If you use a clearinghouse, billing agent, submit paper claims or use DDE, you do not need to take action at this time. (Your clearinghouse or billing agent does need to comply; they are taking action on your behalf.)

The companion guides for HIPAA Version 5010 are now final and can be found on the MIHMS MyHealthPAS portal. These companion guides provide instructions and guidance on transacting with MaineCare under the new HIPAA Version 5010 standards.

If you have not started testing already, now is the time! Visit the HIPAA Version 5010 website for information, resources, and instructions on how to prepare for the January 1, 2012 transition date.
