HETS 270/271

Medicare HETS 270/271 Submitters:

A reminder that a quarterly HETS 270/271 release will be installed tomorrow, Saturday, December 7, 2013.  The HETS 270/271 application will be unavailable during this release - the anticipated outage window is 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time.  

HETS submitters should review the release documentation information below to prepare for this release.  Submitters should take special note that while HETS is being modified to return the total number of hospice occurrences on a 271 response (whenever STC 45 is requested on the 270), this new data element will not be available on the 271 response until January 2014. Once available, the total number of hospice occurrences will be returned in a separate 2110C Loop on the 271 response.  See section 7.16 of the HETS 270/271 Companion Guide for additional information.  MCARE will notify submitters when the total number of hospice occurrences data is available in HETS.

Please contact the Help Desk if you have any questions.
