As an advisor to the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and a multi‐stakeholder organization comprised of health plans, providers, vendors and SDOs, WEDI offers the structure for intra‐industry collaboration. WEDI has proven leadership engaging the industry to address the most impactful changes of our time, including the National Provider Identifier, ICD‐10, health claim attachments and prior authorization.
WEDI supports this proposed rule, which is CMS’ initial phase to advance interoperability across the United States health care system, and specifically within the Medicare and Medicaid programs, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and issuers of qualified health plans (QHPs). This letter focuses our comments on those provisions specifically of interest to WEDI’s membership.
