HETS 270/271
Medicare HETS 270/271 Submitters:

CMS wants to emphasize to trading partners that HETS 270/271 Submitters are not authorized to utilize HETS to create non-CMS controlled Medicare eligibility databases.

HETS 270/271 Submitters have access to HETS 270/271 for the purpose of verifying Medicare eligibility (after screening the patient to initially determine Medicare eligibility) and determining information necessary for the submission of a claim. Use of HETS data outside of this intended purpose requires written authorization/consent from CMS and the beneficiary. HETS data is not intended to be repurposed for any other use. HETS 270/271 Submitters cannot create and host local Medicare eligibility databases that replicate HETS' functionality.

Please contact the Help Desk if you have questions or comments.
