Beginning January 1, 2012, any health care entity that submits electronic
standard transactions to IBC must comply with HIPAA 5010 (errata version).
After this date, version 4010A will no longer be valid.
IBC is preparing for the transition to 5010 by testing directly with our
trading partners. We ask that you speak with your trading partner (or to
whomever you submit your claims) in order to ensure that your trading partner
is compliant and ready to electronically submit standard transactions using
version 5010 by January 1, 2012. Providers should take an active role in
ensuring that their trading partners are on track with 5010 compliance.

A new 5010 billing requirement stipulates that providers can no longer submit a
PO Box or lockbox in the Billing Provider area on professional and
institutional claims. A physical street address must be listed for the Billing
Provider and the Service Facility location.
