The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regional offices are hosting an informative webinar on Version 5010 for health care providers, clearinghouses, and vendors on June 20, 2012. The webinar will be available at three times in the Eastern, Central, and Mountain-Pacific time zones.

At this event you will learn more about current conversion statistics, final preparations for 5010/D.0, operational concerns, the future of EDI communications, and resources and contact information.

Version 5010 refers to the standards that HIPAA-covered entities must use when electronically conducting certain health care administrative transactions, such as claims, remittance, eligibility, and claims status requests, and responses.

To be compliant, organizations must use Version 5010 to send and receive claims and all other HIPAA-adopted electronic transactions starting January 1, 2012; however, CMS has implemented an enforcement discretion period, which is in effect until June 30, 2012.
