Planned MIHMS System Upgrade Nov. 23-27

November 10, 2011

MaineCare is planning to perform an upgrade to the MIHMS (Maine Integrated Health Management Solution) system over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in preparation for HIPAA Version 5010 on January 1, 2012.

At this point, it is likely that the MyHealthPAS online portal will be unavailable from12:00 a.m. Wednesday, November 23rd until 6:00 a.m. Monday November 28th. We do not anticipate a delay in the weekly claims processing and payment cycle.

MaineCare is committed to minimizing disruption during this transition. Some minimal services will be available. During this period, however, providers will not be able to submit claims. MaineCare will follow up with more details over the next two weeks.

Please note that HIPAA Version 5010 transactions will not be accepted prior to January 1, 2012, even if the trading partner is certified.
