ANSI 5010 Update: Why everyone should transition now

As we shift gears towards the holidays, the one thing left for Meditab to do as we prepare to receive the new year, is make sure everyone is ready for ANSI 5010.

Our training and support team has been hard at work hosting webinars, creating simple checklists, scheduled E-blast reminders, setting up provider’s EDIs for their specific clearinghouses, and conducting courtesy calls to clients in efforts to make sure all IMS users are completely prepared and reimbursed on time come January 2012.

Meditab IMS has long been ANSI 5010 and ICD-10 ready, striving to maintain our “Practice On” promise while ensuring that our doctors and nurse practitioners continue to ‘practice on’ with peace of mind that, with IMS, all state and federal regulations will be met and receiving reimbursements on time will not be a challenge.


Any and all providers still using Version 4010 will not be able to be reimbursed after January 1, 2012. The extension is mostly beneficial to those providers who are still unfamiliar with Version 5010, allowing for some time to overcome challenges. CMS made it very clear that ANSI 5010 will still be mandatory by January 1st, however enforcing penalties will not take place until March 31st, 2012. After March 31st CMS will begin penalizing providers who use Version 5010 incorrectly. It is in the physicians’ best interest in reaching out to Meditab and converting to Version 5010 as soon as possible, that way January through March are used strategically in working out any kinks with the new version.
