The HETS 270/271 Q3 release that was installed on Saturday, December 4, 2010 will be removed from the HETS production environment. The HETS 270/271 application will be unavailable during the period. Submitters should not attempt to utilize the HETS system during the installation and testing period. CMS estimates that the installation and testing will be complete by 11:59 PM ET on Monday, December 6, 2010.
Following these changes, HETS 270/271 will be operational as it was normally prior to the Q3 release.
