Outsource HIPAA 5010 Standards Compliance at Outsource2india

HIPAA ASC X12 version 5010 brings a new set of standards that regulate the electronic transmission of specific health care transactions including eligibility, claim status, referrals, claims, and remittances. Covered entities, such as health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and healthcare providers, are required to conform to the new transaction set standards. These standards meet the needs of the healthcare industry in a better way. All healthcare entities are expected to follow these standards after July 2012. HIPAA 5010 is essential for all healthcare organizations so that they can easily accommodate the upcoming ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS code sets that will get implemented by October, 2013.

There are several transactions specified in the HIPAA 5010 standards, these include:

  • Health care claim (professional, institutional, and dental)
  • Health care claim payment/advice
  • Benefit enrollment and maintenance
  • Payroll deducted and other group premium payment for insurance products
  • Authorization request and response
  • Claim status request and response
  • Eligibility benefit inquiry and response

Advantages of HIPAA 5010 over HIPAA 4010:

  • Obsolete data content has been removed and ability to support new use-cases has been added
  • Improved functionality with new changes suggested by the healthcare industry
  • Enhanced POA reporting on claims and more functional transactions
  • NPI regulation support
  • Transaction formatting clarification
  • Usage clarification for ambiguity removal
  • Consistent transactions across the board
  • Accommodation of ICD-10 values
  • Significant improvement in referral transactions and removal of several implementation obstacles
