Important Update: Continue to Submit HIPAA Version 4010 Transactions Until Further Notice

January 10, 2012

We continue to make progress toward compliance and are being diligent in our testing efforts. However, MaineCare will not accept HIPAA Version 5010 electronic batch transactions on January 17th, as previously communicated.

As scheduled, we will upgrade the MIHMS (Maine Integrated Health Management Solution) system from 12:01 am on Friday, January 13th through 7:00 am on Tuesday, January 17th, in preparation for HIPAA Version 5010. The MIHMS Health PAS Online Portal will be unavailable during this time. After this upgrade, trading partners must continue to submit HIPAA Version 4010 electronic batch transactions until further notice. Updated information about acceptance of HIPAA Version 5010 transactions will be shared soon.
