WEDI releases new white paper offering guidance on populating HIPAA adopted version of the electronic dental claim transaction from data reported on the American Dental Association Dental Claim Form

WASHINGTON, July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI), the nation's

leading nonprofit authority on the use of health IT to create efficiencies in healthcare information exchange and a statutory advisor to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), today announced the release of a dental claims white paper. Written by the WEDI Dental Subworkgroup, the paper offers guidance in how users can populate the ASC X12N 005010X224A2 Health Care Claim: Dental (837D) electronic transaction from the data reported on the American Dental Association Dental Claim Form.

According to the paper: "With today's focus on conducting claims and other administrative transactions electronically, it is important to have the ability to map the data from the ADA Dental Claim Form to the ASC X12N 005010X224A2 Health Care Claim: Dental (837D) electronic transaction." As a result, the WEDI Dental Subworkgroup has created an instructional guide to assist users in populating the current HIPAA adopted version of the electronic dental claim transaction with the data from the ADA Dental Claim Form.

The WEDI Dental Subworkgroup focuses on the unique requirements for dental providers, payers, clearinghouses, and practice management systems (PMS) as they relate to HIPAA, HITECH, ARRA, and other rules and regulations impacting the dental industry. Their dental claims white paper is available for download on the WEDI website.
