Don't Delay-Schedule Testing Today

HealthSmart invites its trading partners to join us in 5010 testing to ensure there are no delays or issues in processing your claims cycle. Please email to schedule your testing cycle.

Background: 4010 to 5010

The centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) require conversion from HIPAA Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) X12 version 4010A1 to ASC X12 version 5010. The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has adopted ASC X12 version 5010 as the new HIPAA standard for HIPAA-covered transaction to be effective no later than January 1, 2012.

Unlike the current version 4010/4010A1, Version 5010 accommodates the ICD-10 codes and must first be in place before the changeover to ICD-10 on October 1, 2013. Version 5010 has the ability to tell your practice management or other system that you are using an ICD-10 versus an ICD-9 code.

In order to be compliant with CMS standards, HealthSmart is required to test the Errata Version of 5010 X12 with its submittors and payors. HealthSmart highly encourages your organization to submit test files to us, as failure to test with us may affect your claims processing.
