"Mr. President, this is a big … deal"

Joe Biden filled in the dots with a choice expletive and the health reform bill became law today.

Some little noted sections of the bill related to administrative simplification include:
  • Mandated: CAQH operating rules to standardize HIPAA transactions
  • Standards to be developed:  EFT (including auto-reconciliation of payment and remittance advice), health plan identifiers and claims attachments
  • HHS to consider:  greater consistency for claims transactions' edits and published timeliness of payments by health plans
