Effective January 1, 2012, a federal mandate requires that providers use the HIPAA Version 5010 standard for electronic claim transactions.
We are pleased to announce that Therap has implemented Version 5010 related changes that will impact all providers using Electronic Billing.
This impacts customers doing direct Medicaid billing in Alaska, Delaware, Florida, Kansas, Minnesota, New York, and Wyoming where Therap is certified for 5010 billing. We anticipate the same requirements for users in Colorado, however, the state has not yet completed testing.
We have attached a summary of the required changes to provide you with information that will assist you in meeting the January 1, 2012 compliance requirement.
It is important that providers review and understand the changes detailed in this document and take necessary actions to ensure successful transition to 5010.
If you have any questions regarding 5010, please contact Therap Support
