Department of Health and Human Services Releases Long-Awaited Rules for Healthcare Attachment Transactions

Jopari now offers compatible solutions for health plans and providers

CONCORD, California, December 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) regarding the adoption of standards for healthcare attachment transactions and electronic signatures and amending the standard for certification and authorization of references (Link to the Federal Register). This rule proposes and mandates new standards to support both health care claims and prior authorization transactions, as well as a standard for electronic signatures to be used in connection with health care attachment transactions. The rule is now available for public comment for 90 days beginning on 12/21/2022. The proposed implementation date would require compliance within 24 months of publication of the final rule.

“This is a very exciting announcement from HHS,” said Steve Stevens, CEO of Jopari Solutions. “The attachment NPRM has been long anticipated by the healthcare industry for several years. Our team is actively engaged in supporting industry advocacy efforts and promoting standards, and we have already implemented a relationship between leading PM/EMR/RCM vendors and top Health Plans in the commercial/government segments for attachment exchange. Jopari is ready today and already meets compliance requirements using the same X12 Healthcare Claim Attachment standards proposed by HHS today. We successfully process millions of attachment transactions annually for the industry. “

Jopari has long been an industry leader in electronic attachment delivery, facilitating the exchange of electronic attachments between payers and providers for nearly two decades. “We are proud of the national connectivity network of 1.9 million providers and hundreds of payers that we have built and maintain today, including connectivity to 60+% of national group plan members owned by the top health plans in the US. Our readiness to deliver electronic attachments enables stakeholders to leverage their existing technology investments, connectivity and resources to be able to send and receive attachments electronically today using one standard automated workflow process,” added Stevens.

Earlier this year, Jopari also announced the addition of their new All Payer Attachments model. This solution supports a consistent, streamlined and compliant process, allowing providers to send attachments to Jopari for all payers, and Jopari to deliver via the most efficient route – all at one cost-effective price.

In early 2023, Jopari will announce a series of educational webinars where all interested parties can prepare and learn more about the benefits and ROI of e-attachment programs across all lines of healthcare business Visit www.jopari.com or email [email protected] For additional information.
