Celera Group Reminds All Healthcare Providers... 5010 Compliance: It's Mandatory!

HIPAA version 5010 is a new generation of standards for electronic health care and pharmacy transactions. HIPAA 5010 compliant transactions will be required by Jan. 1, 2012. Transactions not compliant with HIPAA 5010 will be rejected by BCBSNC.

2010-08-15
MARICOPA, AZ, August 15, 2010 (Press-News.org) The business of healthcare is complex. Numerous computer systems interact with one another and with those of service providers, payers, and others to share information required for:

• Benefits Administration
• Claims Processing
• Eligibility Verification
• Billing
• Patient Scheduling & Registration
• Utilization Review
• and more

Soon, the language these systems "speak" with one-another will change from today's "4010" standard to the newly mandated 5010 standard. Compliance with this new standard is required to keep these systems talking to one another. If you have not started the migration process then you may have a great deal of work to do starting now.

What is 5010

• 4010, 4010A1, 5010
- Methods for sending healthcare billing information
- Published formats
• Electronic transactions affected
- Billing for Institutional and Professional claims
- Remittance advice
- Eligibility verification
- Claim status requests
- Authorization requests
- Pharmacy billing
• All healthcare providers and managed care organizations are affected


High Level Changes for 5010

• Providers
- Will be unable to bill for services in the 4010A1 format after Jan 1, 2012
- Allows for conditions that "present at admission"
• Situational Rules
- No longer means the receivers can define what they want
- Very specific rules on when situational information is required
• Significant data and structural updates
- Allow for sending ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS codes
- Fields lengthened to allow for more data
- Consistency across file structures

Who is Affected

• Physician Practices
• Alternate Site Providers
• Hospitals
• Payers
• Clearinghouses
• Research
• Vendors
