CMS Ends its Enforcement Discretion Period for 5010 on June 30, 2012


As released by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) today, CMS will end its enforcement discretion period for Version 5010 standards on June 30, 2012. This means that medical practices must be fully compliant with all of the upgraded transaction standards for ASC X12 Version 5010 (Version 5010) by this deadline.

As of July 1, 2012, non compliance with 5010 standards will be subject to enforcement action under the existing HIPAA transaction and code set enforcement process.

For information regarding these updated standards, please contact a representative at Harmony Healthcare IT, or, visit the Versions 5010 and D.0 & 3.0 page on the CMS website.
