HIPAA Version 5010 Discretion Period Ends Tomorrow

Physicians and their practices have until tomorrow, June 30, 2012 to prepare for the implementation of HIPAA Version 5010, which is a revised set of HIPAA electronic transaction standards adopted to replace the current Version 4010/4010A standards utilized by CMS.

In March, CMS announced that HIPAA Version 5010 implementation would beĀ postponed for an additional three months from April 1, 2012 to June 30, 2012 to allow health care professionals more time to complete testing and to meet the new standards. As of July 1, any HIPAA-covered entity not compliant with the updated standards will be required to do so.

For assistance with HIPAA Version 5010 compliance, refer to the Version 5010 & ICD-10 Resources offered on the NCMS website or contact Terri Gonzalez, Director of Practice Improvement, at 800-722-1350 or [email protected].
