The resource for information on health plan electronic transaction changes in 2003.
Created by the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH) and the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI), this site intends to ease potential provider confusion related to 2003 HIPAA-mandated changes in health plan-provider electronic interactions. Designed as one common resource for providers and plans alike, this site gives providers the latest information on health plan transaction changes and equips health plans with simple tools to communicate these changes to providers.
CAQH and WEDI created two tools to help health plans communicate to providers their implementation of the HIPAA X12N and NCPDP transaction changes: the
Transactions Testing and Implementation Schedule Template and the
"Best Practice" Companion Guide Template.
Health plans, system vendors, provider representatives and healthcare/HIPAA industry experts provided input during the development of these tools.

With our ClarediSM Classic, FacilediSM, and CommunediSM services, we offer the easiest, most efficient path to HIPAA EDI compliance.
