CMS Updates 5010 Transaction Edits
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is updating specific 5010 837P and 837I transaction edits, which will be implemented by July 31, 2011. Due to the urgency with which these modifications must be made, the most current 837P and 837I Edit Spreadsheets do not reflect these changes. However, the January 2012 5010 837P and 837I Edit Spreadsheets will reflect these edit changes.
