HETS 270/271

Medicare HETS 270/271 Submitters:

CMS is planning an upcoming HETS 270/271 system release which will impact HETS 270/271 Submitters.   

The HETS R2018Q300 Release will introduce several potential changes to the HETS 270 request and 271 response. CMS has published a HETS 270/271 R2018Q300 Release Summary in anticipation of this release. 

CMS wants to emphasize that while HETS 270/271 will now supporter a larger historical Dates of Service span, HETS Submitters should carefully consider which, if any, circumstances should they submit 270 requests which contain the maximum allowable date span.  CMS discourages HETS Submitters from defaulting to the maximum allowable date span on all eligibility requests.  CMS urges all HETS submitters to use this R2018Q300 Release Summary and the upcoming HETS 270/271 R2018Q300 Companion Guide to prepare for this upcoming release. 

HETS R2018Q300 Release Summary: /Research-Statistics-Data-and-Systems/CMS-Information-Technology/HETSHelp/Downloads/R2018Q300HETS270271ReleaseSummary.pdf (PDF) (version 1.0)

The R2018Q300 release is currently scheduled for September, 2018.  Submitters will be notified when additional information is available regarding this release.
