CMS Hosting National Conference Call on HIPAA Version 5010–June 9, 2009

On June 9, 2009, from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm EDT, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host a national education conference call to address Medicare’s FFS implementation of HIPAA Version 5010. CMS is conducting this call for all Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) providers. The call is to give a general overview of Medicare’s transition to HIPAA Version 5010 and address some of the exceptions and situations providers may encounter as the new version is implemented. The call will include a presentation and Subject Matter Experts to answer questions specific to Medicare. CMS has a HIPAA Version 5010 Webpage to track implementation dates and post informational documents.

To participate in the live conference call, listeners must register in advance. Registration will close at 2:30 p.m. ET on June 8, 2009, or when available space has been filled. To register, click here.

CMS will post a PowerPoint presentation on its HIPAA Version 5010 Webpage before the call. An audio version of the conference call also will be made available later on the HIPAA Version 5010 webpage.
