Companion Guide for 835 Available
Sometimes all you need to make something work is an actual manual where all the parts are explained. Practices implementing version 5010 have access to such a manual from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
“Instructions related to the 835 Health Care Claim Payment/Advice based on ASC X12 Technical Report Type 3 (TR3), version 005010A1” won’t make your book club sit up and take notice, but it includes explanations of all the fields, their codes, and functions to make complying with the new electronic transaction standards easier. The 10-page manual is free and downloadable.
