The Other HIPAA:
Have your billing systems migrated from the 4010 standards to the 5010 standards? Do you even know what I'm talking about? You don't really need to know what it is or how it works, but the HIPAA transaction standards require that everyone doing electronic transactions in healthcare use specific transaction forms/content/types. Those forms were originally set to a standard known as 4010, but the forms have been updated to the 5010 standard. Everyone should have started testing the new form in 2011, and must migrate to the new form
no later than January 1, 2012. It's a technical thing, so check with your billing folks to make sure you're ready to make the switch by then.
