Harvard Pilgrim Companion Guides for HIPAA Transactions
The Companion Guides below will assist those responsible for testing and setup of electronic claims-related transactions. Specifically, the guides clarify when conditional data elements and segments must be used, and identify codes and data elements that do not apply to Harvard Pilgrim. The Companion Guides supplement the HIPAA Standard Implementation Guides that are available at www.wpc-edi.com/.
In order to simplify transaction information for providers, payers of New England Healthcare EDI Network (NEHEN) collaborated to produce new combined 837 Companion Guides. These guides are supported by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Neighborhood Health Plan of Massachusetts and Tufts Health Plan, and can be found on the NEHEN Web site at www.nehen.org and via the links below.*
