A new APTA Web page contains resources to help physical therapists transition to HIPAA Version 5010. In addition to implementation information, the association has designed an online complaint form for members who are having issues transitioning to the new standards. After the form is completed and submitted online, APTA will forward the issue to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The official deadline to adopt Version 5010 was January 1. CMS will begin enforcement of the standards April 1.
