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.

If you're not sure where to begin, don't worry— we can help. If you are ready to test, call FCSO's EDI department —888-670-0940 (option 5) — and one of our 5010 transition experts will help you understand 5010 testing protocols and schedule your testing session.

Need more information? Visit the 5010 resources section of FCSO's Medicare provider website. You'll find the latest news, helpful testing tips, and all the information you need to facilitate your transition to 5010. Please visit:

Don't let the January 1, 2012, compliance deadline negatively impact your bottom line. Call FCSO EDI (888-670-0940, option 5) to schedule your testing today, and your organization will be ready for 5010.
