CMS recently announced an enforcement discretion period for updated HIPAA ASC X12 Version 5010 (Version 5010), NCPDP Telecom D.0 (NCPDP D.0), and NCPDP Medicaid Subrogation 3.0 (NCPDP 3.0) standards. While the compliance date for implementation of these updated standards remains January 1, 2012, CMS will not initiate enforcement actions with respect to any HIPAA covered entity non-compliant with the updated standards for 90 days — or until March 31, 2012.
