HIPAA Compliance

HIPAA Compliance Efforts

As part of HIPAA regulations, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have adopted ASC X12 version 5010 and ICD-10. Sagamore is currently upgrading their system to support 5010 and ICD-10. Sagamore expects to be ready to begin testing version 5010 with trading partners January 1, 2011. Version 5010 will replace the current EDI standard version 4010A1 and all trading partners will be required to convert by January 1, 2012.

If you are a Sagamore trading partner ready to test, or if you are interested in discussing electronic claim transactions, please contact Sagamore's Director of EDI.
