The "Other" HIPAA (transaction and code sets news):
I don't usually blog about this part of HIPAA, partly because it is pretty static and boring, and partly because I don't really know or understand the technical nuts and bolts of it. But the "standardized forms" that were generated and are required for use under HIPAA are in for an update
(they are going from the the 4010 series of standard transactions to the 5010 series). Transactions will go live in 5010 starting January 1, 2011, and everyone will have to switch from 4010 to 5010 by January 1, 2012.
If this impacts you, check with your medical billing and coding specialist or vendors) to make sure they're ready for the switch.
