The Countdown to Version 5010 Implementation Is Underway

National Government Services News

  • Did you know that effective January 1, 2012 all covered entities will be required to use the new Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) 5010 version for electronic filing?
  • Did you know that effective January 1, 2012 electronic submitters who are not using version 5010 for HIPAA electronic transactions will have their claims rejected and they won’t receive payment?
  • Did you know that there are less than 130 days for the version 5010 implementation?

Medical offices and providers should feel the pressure to get their systems ready for the version 5010 implementation. National Government Services has created several helpful resources to assist electronic submitters to prepare for the version 5010 transition. These resources are available on the Version 5010 Implementation page located on the Electronic Submission (EDI) section on the National Government Services Web site.

We have also offered free monthly Webinars for all providers and facilities to join and will continue to offer these free monthly webinars. However, despite these free education opportunities, medical offices are still not prepared for the version 5010 change. Be proactive and start preparing for version 5010 today!
