Home Health Agencies should ask their homecare software vendor if they are ready for the new required software changes for claims submission. All covered entities must submit Medicare electronic claims using X12 version 5010 effective January 1, 2012. If your software vendor is not currently testing or sending production claims in the v5010 format, please review the ANSI 5010 information posted under PalmettoGBA/ANSI5010.
Please contact the Technology Support Center at (866) 749-4301 if you have any questions regarding the v5010 transition.
Don’t risk payment interruption. Transition to v5010 now!
