Medicare HETS 270/271 Submitters:

CMS IT identified that some Submitters that utilize a DigiCert SHA2 Secure Server CA certificate were being impacted by an issue where their DigiCert certificate's revocation list (CRL) was not updated in a timely manner by DigiCert.  HETS was therefore rejecting connection requests sent with these certificates. 

CMS IT has verified that Certificate Authority (CA) DigiCert resolved this issue at approximately 8:09 PM ET.  Following that update, HETS once again began accepting connectivity requests from these SOAP or MIME submitters. All impacted Submitters should now see proper results. 

Please contact the Help Desk if you have any questions.
