Medicare HETS 270/271 Submitters:

CMS previously announced that the HETS 270/271 Q3 release is now scheduled for October 3, 2010.

In addition to this previously announced Q3 release, CMS is also planning a HETS 270/271 Q4 system release in November, 2010. The Q4 release will enhance the 271 responses Trading Partners receive from the HIPAA Eligibility Transaction System (HETS) 270/271. No content changes to the 270 request will be required for this release. Please review the online release documentation in the Downloads section below and prepare as necessary.

Companion Guide: The Updated Q4 Companion Guide will be available soon; MCARE will notify all submitters when this document is available for download.

The release is scheduled to be installed on Saturday, November 13, 2010. The HETS 270/271 application will be unavailable during the system release. CMS will distribute more specific release information (including estimated outage times) in October, 2010.

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