If you receive an 835 (electronic RA) this applies to you. MaineCare will no longer provide a HIPAA Version 4010 835 after March 31, 2012.

Starting April 1, 2012, 835s will only be available in HIPAA Version 5010. To receive the 5010 version before April 1st, you must make an election in your Trading Partner account.

Elect to receive HIPAA Version 5010 835s by: - Logging into your Trading Partner account. - Clicking the “Provider Associations” button. - Clicking the “Edit” button. - Selecting the radio button for the 5010 version and click on the “Update” button.

For complete instructions and screen shots about electing to receive a 5010 835 file, please go to the HIPAA 5010 webpage. Go to the section called “Toolkit for Trading Partners”.
