In November 2017, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it would pilot a program to audit health plans’ and clearinghouses’ compliance with HIPAA transactions and code sets.
The program, called the HHS Administrative Simplification Optimization Program (ASOP), will include reviews of health plan electronic transactions for compliance with federally mandated provisions, such as the standards and operating rules for electronic remittance advice (ERA).
For the compliance review, health plans and clearinghouses will be asked to submit transaction files for review and testing through CMS’ in-house testing system, called the Administrative Simplification Enforcement Testing Tool or ASETT.
To help you prepare, Zelis Healthcare conducted tests using the ASETT system and prepared a guide with informative tips on navigating the complex CMS system to pre-test your X12 files ahead of the ASOP program launch.
