3 eMDR Message (1/2) esMD Data Set Requirement esMD DefinitionPriority /Status Conclusions Individual Provider or Provider Organization Address Location specified for the provider receipt of additional documentation requests LowUnnecessary for electronic communications Individual Provider Prefix LowUnnecessary Payer or Payer Contractor Digital Certificate RequiredMight be able to use 277 REF segment but need additional research. Could this be included in metadata or is this something that needs to remain with the request? Payer or Payer Contractor Signature Artifact Required

4 eMDR Message (2/2) esMD Data Set Requirement esMD DefinitionPriority/ Status Conclusions Payer Organization vs Payer Contractor Must include the payer and recommend including the specific payer contractor. Should provide contact information for the payer contractor if one is involved. High/ Possibly covered Could use 277 PER Elements within the Payer Information loop or within the Claim Supplemental Information loop for Contractor contact information CMS - Prefer to use OIDs to represent each contractor. Commercial - Need to identify preferences Purpose of eMDR Request Type High/ Covered pending further research Limit to ASC X12 R Request Codes, with potential extensions to codify authority. Request Type Reason Text description of reason for the replacement, follow up, or termination for a prior request LowUnnecessary in structured approach

5 General Request Information esMD Data Set Requirement CommentsPriority/ Status Conclusions Date of Request Date the eMDR was sentLow/ Covered 277 includes a response due date and transaction date. These may be sufficient for esMD. Cover Letter Text LowUnnecessary in structured approach (pending further review of CMS requirements) Program The type of program sending the eMDR (e.g. MAC, RAC, CERT, ZPIC) High/ TBD Unnecessary if authority of requestor can be communicated via extensions to ASC X12 R Request Codes

6 Audit Specific Information esMD Data Set Requirement CommentsPriority/ Status Conclusions Scope or Type of Audit Pre certification, Claim Payment Documentation, Audit, Payment Recovery Medium/ Covered Covered via ASC X12 R Request Codes Unique Case Reference Identifier A case number used to track one or more related eMDRs. Serves as a unique external ID. RequiredSubmit change request to ASC X12

Need to be able to tie these together. Beneficiary Date of Birth TBDCMS – Unnecessary Commercial - Need to review requirements

8 Claim Related Information (Claim Level Detail) esMD Data Set Requirement CommentsPriority/ Status Conclusions Date Claim Received Claim could be submitted multiple times with revisions. This provides a way to differentiate between the multiple claim submissions. Medium/ Internal Discussion Need to decide if this is necessary and of value to providers.
