The release Companion Guide, Release Summary and Sample 271 response documents have been updated to reflect the following changes to the upcoming release:

1) Two additional HH+H contract numbers have been added to the list of new HH+H Region Contract Numbers that HETS will return and

2) The 271 2110C DTP01 value for the Plan Level Co-Insurance is also being modified to return DTP01 = ‘291’ instead of ‘292’ specifically when returning the Medicare Part B Plan Level Co-Insurance segment.  

Please review the updated documents for all changes (including the two mentioned above) as you prepare for the December, 2013 scheduled installation of the HETS R2013Q400 Release.
