On May 26, 2009 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the dates and agenda for their remaining 2009 Town Hall Teleconferences. It is important to distinguish that the CMS will conduct a handful of conferences specifically relating to technical questions surrounding the Section 111 data exchange process. There will be a separate group of teleconferences that have been setup to address questions pertaining to Section 111 compliance in general.
Also included in this announcement is a companion document created to supplement the HIPAA guidelines for electronic transactions for Non-GHP Entities. The document provides information on the transactions sets needed to transmit data to, as well as receive data from, the Medicare Coordination of Benefits System.
