POS Device Update Underway for HIPAA ASC X12N v.5010A1 Compliance

May 3, 2017

A previously published NewsFlash notified providers of a Point of Service (POS) device update to take place by the last quarter of 2016. However, the update will take place on May 22, 2017. This information has been corrected in the article below:

The Department of Health Care Services has initiated a project to update Medi-Cal supplied POS devices to accept and process HIPAA ASC X12N v.5010A1 transactions.

The POS devices currently in use will be updated from ASC X12N v.4010A1 to ASC X12N v.5010A1 on May 22, 2017. Providers submitting transactions through emulated non-VeriFone devices running third-party software will also need to update their devices to meet HIPAA-compliant transaction standards. Providers may call the POS Helpdesk at 1-800-541-5555 with any questions.
