ANSI 5010 Preparation
Are you prepared for the ANSI 5010 and IDC-10-CM conversions? Even though this is not mandated until 2012 Medisoft has been preparing for this for quite some time and the newest version will be ready for testing the new requirements in 2011. This gives adequate time for software users to make the necessary changes and work out all the kinks before they are rejected and have huge disruptions in their billing and cash flow.
What is ANSI 5010?
HIPPA requires the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to adopt required standards for covered entities to use when conducting certain health care transactions electronically, such as claims, remittance advices, and requests and responses for eligibility and claims status. This includes health care providers, clearinghouses and health plans.
The current transaction standard is X12 version 4010A1 and NCPDP version 5.1. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has mandated that the industry upgrade to X12 version 5010 and NCPDP version D.O. The new standars will:
- Increase transaction uniformity
- Support pay-for-performance
- Streamline reimbursement transactions
- Support ICD-10-CM codification
- Print the schedule exactly as it appears on the screen.
Impact on Providers
The implementation of HIPAA 5010 means substantial changes in the data that you submit with your claims as well as the data you receive in response to your electronic inquiries. The implementation requres TONS of changes to the software, systems, and perhaps procedures that you use for billing Medicare and other payers. If anyone remembers what happened when NPI was implemented- just imagine that times 10 as far as the number of changes. We are not waiting until the last minute on this and strongly urge everyone to hurry and get on v17 so they can begin making those changes during the testing period, before claims start being rejected. It is extremely important that you are aware of these HIPAA changes and plan for their implementation.
