HIPAA 5010 implementation: Don't delay!!
Are you ready for 5010? It is crucial for First Coast Service Options'(FCSO) electronic trading partners to schedule 5010 transaction testing now.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires all HIPAA-covered entities to complete 5010 testing with each of their trading partners and successfully transition to the new 5010 data format before January 1, 2012. However, with only a few months left until mandatory implementation, those that continue to wait to schedule 5010 testing risk significant delays in their transition to production.
