Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has named the Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange, known as CORE, as the authoring entity for rules to further standardize six HIPAA administrative/financial transactions.

The Affordable Care Act mandated adoption of operating rules, which have been under development and voluntarily adopted for several years. The reform law called on the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics, an HHS advisory body, to recommend an authoring entity. NCVHS previously recommended CORE as the authoring entity for eligibility, status and EFT/ERA transactions, which HHS accepted. The eligibility and claim status operating rules have a compliance date of January 1, 2013, with EFT/ERA mandated for use a year later.
