Getting ready for 5010 billing on January 1st, 2012

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 […]

HIPAA 5010 Billing in Therap

As I said in yesterday’s post, Therap 9.2 which we will be releasing on November 20th contains a number of updates as part of our transition from the 4010 to 5010 billing standards.

5010 billing is due to start on January 1st, 2012, however we are still in the process of finalizing the testing that we are doing with the states where we do electronic billing.

For the time being, please do not update the new fields and formats we have as these may actually interfere with your current (4010).

Electronic billing is a very fickle creature and individual states to no always do things exactly according to standards, so please wait for specific instructions for your state.
