Is Your Agency Prepared for Version 5010?

Homecare Insider, September 19, 2011

The Version 5010 deadline is only a few months away: January 1, 2012. Although your transition should be well underway, some providers may have procrastinated or be unsure of where they should be at this point in time. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued the following guidance for providers, to be completed prior to the looming deadline:

  • Continue external testing and make any needed revisions based on the internal testing you should have completed previously.
  • Test transactions that are used on a daily basis. For example: claims and eligibility determinations.

Payers should continue their transition and testing with partners and complete their external testing, and the transition, by December 31, 2011. Vendors should continue external testing with their customers and conduct solution rollout/customer support through the deadline.
