1 1 So You Want to Make a Change — Changing X12 Materials — So You Want to Make a Change — Changing X12 Materials — May, 2005

2 2 So You Want to Make a Change Topics Products, Processes, and Forms Selected Processes Details Timings and Schedules More Details

3 3 X12 Products Standards –Transactions  X12 Syntax  EDIFACT Syntax  XML Syntax –Communications and Controls Code Sets –Internal code sets –Sources for external code lists continued on next slide

4 4 X12 Products Technical Reports –Type 1 – Tutorial [for one standard] –Type 2 – Reference Model [cross-standards] –Type 3 – Implementation Guide (IG) Adopted for HIPAA Not Adopted for HIPAA Interpretations –Transaction Standards –Implementation Guides [X12N/TG2 only]

5 5 Key Non-X12 Products External Code Lists; e.g., –ICD-9 – NDC – Reason Codes –CPT-4 – CDT – Remark Codes –HCPCS – DRG – Revenue Codes –NPlanID – NPI – Employer ID –NAIC – UPC – ‘Bank’ Numbers –LOINC – Taxonomy – Error Codes –ZIP Codes – States and Outlying Areas Codes –Countries, Currencies and Funds Codes HIPAA Regulations

6 6 Key Non-X12 Products External Code Lists; e.g., –ICD-9 – NDC – Reason Codes –CPT-4 – CDT – Remark Codes –HCPCS – DRG – Revenue Codes –NPlanID – NPI – Employer ID –NAIC – UPC – ‘Bank’ Numbers –LOINC – Taxonomy – Error Codes –ZIP Codes – States and Outlying Areas Codes –Countries, Currencies and Funds Codes Sunday, noonSunday, 1pm Regular, non-X12, Code Committee Meetings that precede each X12 Meeting

7 7 X12 Change Paradigm Once X12 documents are published, they are never modified All changes are incorporated into follow-on documents –New standards versions; including complete lists of all internal code sets values and sources for external codes lists –New Implementation Guides (IG), IG Addenda, and IG Errata [X12N only] –New Technical Reports (TR1, TR2, TR3) Differences from predecessor documents are noted

8 8 Most Common X12 Processes Data Maintenance (DM) Code Maintenance Request (CMR) X12N IG and TR3 Development HIPAA Change Request (CR) Request for Interpretation – Implementation Guide (HIR) – Transaction Standard (RFI)

9 9 Primary X12 Forms X12 Project Proposal –New X12 Standard –Revised X12 Standard continued on next slide

10 10 Primary X12 Forms X12 Work Request –Revised X12 Standard –New Technical Report –Data Maintenance for a new or revised X12 Standard; but most new or revised code values may use the online CMR form online version also available continued on next slide

11 11 Primary X12 Forms X12 Code Maintenance Request (CMR) –New or revised X12 code values; except those in envelope segments ISA, IEA, GS, and GE –Online form only; available on the X12 web site continued on next slide

12 12 Primary X12 Forms X12 Transmittal Form Records the dates of the review and approval levels achieved for a particular development project by / at: –Subcommittee(s) –Project Delegate(s) –Secretariat (DISA) –Technical Assessment (TAS) (X12J) –Procedures Review Board (PRB) continued on next slide

13 13 Primary X12 Forms X12N Implementation Guide Project Proposal –New Implementation Guide (IG) [which may or may not become a new Type 3 Technical Report (TR3) ] –Revised IG; i.e., IG Addenda –IG Errata continued on next slide

14 14 Primary X12 Forms Request for Interpretation of X12N Implementation Guide (HIR) – There is no form. The submitter uses the interactive database at – Initially [November, 2004], only the nine X12N Implementation Guides and their Addenda adopted under HIPAA are covered ASC X12N/TG2 Interpretations Portal Register Search Login Help continued on next slide

15 15 Primary X12 Forms Request for Interpretation of X12 Transaction Standard (RFI) – There is no form. The submitter sends a letter providing “a comprehensive description of the aspect of the standard that needs interpretation and provides a business case to explain the need for the interpretation. The affected standard is specified by title, reference number(s), version/release, and publication date.” – RFI’s should be sent to: Chair, Accredited Standards Committee X12 c / o Data Interchange Standards Association 7600 Leesburg Pike, Suite 430 Falls Church, Virginia Attn: Request for X12 Interpretation

16 16 So You Want to Make a Change Topics Products, Processes, and Forms Selected Processes Details Changing an existing transaction standard Adding or changing an X12 code value Requesting changes to an IG or TR3 Creating a new IG or TR3 Timings and Schedules More Details

17 17 Changing an Existing Transaction Standard Use Data Maintenance (DM) process for –Revised transaction standards –New or revised segments –New or revised data elements –New or revised X12 code values † –New or revised non-X12 code sources ‡ –New or revised control standards † Most new or revised X12 code values may be processed more rapidly using the online CMR process ‡ New or revised non-X12 code values only processed by their owning organizations; i.e., only the non-X12 code sources may make their code values changes

18 18 Changing an Existing Transaction Standard Data Maintenance (DM) Waypoints in X12N  Work Request Form Process  Work Group  Architecture Task Group (TG8)  Parent Task Group (TG1 or TG2)  Insurance Subcommittee (X12N)  Secretariat – Data Interchange Standards Association (DISA) [ functions shown on next slide ]  Technical Assessment Subcommittee (TAS) (X12J)  Procedures Review Board (PRB)  X12 DM Ballot Process [ a saga unto itself ]  Publisher – DISA

19 19 Changing an Existing Transaction Standard Data Maintenance (DM) Waypoints in X12N  Work Request Form Process  Secretariat – DISA – functions: –Obtains X12N Chair or Vice-Chair signature on Work Request Form –Copies signed Work Request Form –Submits original Work Request Form to DISA data base Update Center –Reviews DM in DISA data base for accuracy –Assigns and records DM number –Prepares for and runs DM Ballot Process SIDEBARSIDEBAR

20 20 Adding or Changing an X12 Code Value Use Code Maintenance Request (CMR) process for –New or revised X12 code values Notes: 1. DM process may always be used if desired; it’s just usually not as rapid as CMR 2. DM process must be used for code values contained in envelope segments ISA, IEA, GS, and GE 3. DM process must be used to create new code values that identify non-X12 code sources

21 21 Adding or Changing an X12 Code Value Code Maintenance Request (CMR) Waypoints  Submit CMR via online form  X12 CMR Ballot Process [ approve unless excepted ]  Technical Assessment Subcommittee (TAS) (X12J)  Procedures Review Board (PRB)  Publisher – Data Interchange Standards Association (DISA)

22 22 Requesting Changes to an IG or TR3 A.If only an IG – use collegial process (i.e., make change suggestions known to responsible / authoring work groups) and/or B.If IG is also a TR3 – use Work Request Form process and/or C.If IG or TR3 is adopted under HIPAA – use Designated Standards Maintenance Organizations’ (DSMO) online Change Request System (CRS)

23 23 Requesting Changes to a HIPAA IG or TR3 DSMO Change Request System (CRS) Process  Register and log-in at  Submit information requested  General section  X12-specific section  Wait until approximately the middle of the month following the date request was submitted and then check which DSMO have expressed interest – X12 better be one of them continued on next slide

24 24 Requesting Changes to a HIPAA IG or TR3 DSMO Change Request System (CRS) Process  Wait approximately another three months and then check the proposed solutions from each of the DSMO that have expressed interest – X12 included  Wait approximately another month and then check the approved solution  Watch for various extensions during the preceding two steps and adjust as necessary continued on next slide

25 25 Requesting Changes to a HIPAA IG or TR3 DSMO Change Request System (CRS) Process  Timely enter an objection if the approved solution is not satisfying  Attend X12 Trimester Meetings to watch and/or participate in sausage being made  Participate in Public Comment Periods for IG’s responding to changes requested  Participate at X12 Trimester Meeting Informational Forums for IG’s responding to changes requested

26 26 Creating a New IG or TR3 Use X12N IG Handbook Process for –New Insurance Subcommittee (X12N) Implementation Guide (IG) or new Type 3 Technical Report (TR3) –Revised X12N IG – Addenda –Errata to an X12N IG Five phases

27 27 Creating a New IG or TR3 IG Process Waypoints in X12N I. Project Initiation – IG Project Proposal Form  Work Group  Parent Task Group (TG1 or TG2)  Implementation Guide Task Group (TG4)  Any other affected Subcommittees  Registrar – Washington Publishing Company continued on next slide
