MassHealth will be holding a webinar on June 20, 2019 at 2 pm in regard to its Technical Refresh of the MassHealth Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) to replace its HIPAA compliance and translator tool. The tool is used to validate HIPAA compliance and translate the HIPAA compliant transactions to an XML format so that they can be processed within MassHealth's MMIS. All HIPAA transactions (inbound/outbound) processed through MassHealth's MMIS will be affected by this technical refresh. MassHealth will be conducting Trading Partner Testing (TPT) with providers and Billing Intermediaries, Clearinghouses and Software Vendors that directly send or receive transactions to/from MassHealth in the summer of 2019 and early 2020. MassHealth strongly recommends that all affected trading partners update their systems, and conduct TPT with MassHealth to validate compliance.
