MGMA calls for HIPAA 5010 contingency plan
from Health Data Management
The Medical Group Management Association is calling for a contingency plan of at least six months for the transition to the HIPAA 5010 transaction sets. Under the plan, health plans would continue to accept Version 4010 transactions and adjudicate 5010 transactions that lack all required data. The association, which regularly surveys members and has previously warned that physicians and much of the industry remain unprepared for 5010, says federal officials need to expand the current contingency plan.
