The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced today that they will be hosting a PAID Act webinar on June 23, 2021 at 1 PM ET. This alert is located on the CMS NGHP website What New page and can be found here. CMS states that the webinar will cover “what the PAID Act is, details of the NGHP Section 111 Query Response File changes, information on the scheduled testing period and implementation timeframes.” The webinar will also be followed by a live question and answer period.
The PAID Act will be a material change to current reporting systems as it will require technical updates to the current Section 111 query process. It is important for Responsible Reporting Entities (RREs) to determine how their current Section 111 vendor or claims system will address these technical updates and ensure timely implementation of the new query function.
