Announcing a Public Review Period for the 271, Premium Payment Grace Period Notification (007030X344)

The ASC X12 Premium Payment Grace Period Notification (271) Implementation Guide (007030X344) is now available for public review. This guide has been developed by ASC X12's Insurance Subcommittee. Following this review period, ASC X12 will conduct a corresponding Informational Forum. The Informational Forum is the final opportunity for discussion of public review comments and resulting revisions.

The Premium Payment Grace Period Notification Implementation Guide describes the use of the ASC X12 Eligibility, Coverage or Benefit Information (271) transaction set for reporting Health Insurance Exchange (HIX) Premium Payment Grace Period, other (non-HIX) premium payment grace periods, and related information from health plans to providers.

The guide is based on version 007030 of the ASC X12 family of standards.

The public review will commence March 9, 2016 and will close on May 9, 2016 at 5:00 PM Pacific Time. ASC X12 will consider all comments following the public review period. Official responses will be posted to the on-line conference at least 15 days prior to the corresponding Informational Forum. The posted response is not necessarily the final determination as discussion in the Informational Forum may result in revisions to the posted response. This on-line conference is not updated based on discussion or decisions related to the Informational Forum.

This is the only public review period. Interested parties should monitor the on-line conference during the public review period and prior to the Informational Forum, which is the final opportunity for comment on the draft TR3.

Watch for the announcement of the corresponding Informational Forum.
