The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is encouraging Medicare fee-for-service providers to participate in a week of testing the HIPAA 5010 transactions sets, Aug. 22-26.

Interested providers should contact their Medicare Administrative Contractor now, as providers will have access to real-time help desk support, and direct and immediate access to their contractor that week.

Several state Medicaid agencies also will participate in the National 5010 Testing Week. According to CMS, successful testing with a payer is required before a trading partner is placed into production.
