Title: ●Administrative Simplification; Health Care Claims Attachments (CMS-0053-P) 
Abstract:

This proposed rule would adopt standards and operating rules for attachments based on statutory requirements introduced in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and reinforced in the Affordable Care Act.  In general, it would apply to circumstances in which a provider attaches clinical information to a transaction that it is being transmitted to a health plan. We are required to adopt standards to facilitate the electronic exchange of clinical information.
