WEDI Policy Advisory Group Forum Regarding Electronic Transaction Standards X12 5010, NCPDP D.0 and NCPDP 3.0 and the Medical Data Code Set Standards ICD-10 NPRMs


Tuesday, September 9 - Thursday, September 11, 2008
Marriott at Fairview Park
3111 Fairview Park Drive [map]
Falls Church, VA 22042



The NPRMs (Notice of Proposed Rule Making) for Electronic Transaction Standards X12 5010, NCPDP D.0 and NCPDP 3.0 and the Medical Data Code Set Standards ICD-10 have been released. The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) will conduct a Policy Advisory Group (PAG) Forum to address these NPRMs on September 9-11, 2008 at the Marriott at Fairview Park in Northern Virginia. Your participation in this important program is vital as we will be seeking your guidance and input on what recommendations and suggested modifications need to be submitted to HHS regarding these proposed regulations. The healthcare industry has been waiting for the publication of these important regulations for some time, and their impact on your business and administrative operations will be significant. This is your primary opportunity to have your organizationís perspectives and opinions considered in the preparation of the final rules.

The lead time for this PAG is shorter than normal, but was necessary due to conflicting program commitments already on the industry calendar and important religious holidays. We also anticipate that the complexity of these proposed NPRMs will necessitate additional review and preparation time after the PAG, for our final recommendations to HHS by the October 21 deadline.

The PAG will consist of two 1 ½ day programs, held back to back, to minimize the travel cost and valuable time of our attendees. The program will start at 9:30 AM on Tuesday, September 9, with the Transactions Standards PAG, including X12 5010, NCPDP D.0 and NCPDP 3.0. This PAG will run to lunch on Wednesday, September 10. The meeting will reconvene after lunch on September 10 with the ICD-10 PAG, which will conclude no later than 4:00 PM on Thursday, September 11.

The fee for WEDI members to attend the entire event is $495 and the fee for non-WEDI members is $545. The fee for those wishing to attend only one PAG session will be $250/WEDI member and $275/Non member.

WEDI has a long tradition of convening an industry-wide Policy Advisory Group meeting when proposed and final regulations related to HIPAA are issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). At the PAG, we will solicit feedback from the industry related to the proposed regulations. The PAG will serve as a forum for discussion of regulation-related comments. Ultimately, the comments and issues discussed at the PAG will form the basis for WEDI's official response to HHS as it relates to this proposed rule.
