Subdivision 1.

[Repealed, 2002 c 307 art 2 s 9; 2002 c 330 s 35]

Subd. 1a.Electronic claim transactions.

Group purchasers, including government programs, not defined as covered entities under United States Code, title 42, sections 1320d to 1320d-8, as amended from time to time, and the regulations promulgated under those sections, that voluntarily agree with providers to accept electronic claim transactions, must accept them in the ANSI X12N 837 standard electronic format as established by federal law. Nothing in this section requires acceptance of electronic claim transactions by entities not covered under United States Code, title 42, sections 1320d to 1320d-8, as amended from time to time, and the regulations promulgated under those sections. Notwithstanding the above, nothing in this section or other state law prohibits group purchasers not defined as covered entities under United States Code, title 42, sections 1320d to 1320d-8, as amended from time to time, and the regulations promulgated under those sections, from requiring, as authorized by Minnesota law or rule, additional information associated with a claim submitted by a provider.

All group purchasers that accept paper claim transactions must accept, and health care providers submitting paper claim transactions must submit, these transactions with use of the applicable medical and nonmedical data code sets specified in the federal electronic claim transaction standards adopted under United States Code, title 42, sections 1320d to 1320d-8, as amended from time to time, and the regulations promulgated under those sections. The paper claim transaction must also be conducted using the uniform billing forms as specified in section 62J.52 and the identifiers specified in section 62J.54, on and after the compliance date required by law. Notwithstanding the above, nothing in this section or other state law prohibits group purchasers not defined as covered entities under United States Code, title 42, sections 1320d to 1320d-8, as amended from time to time, and the regulations promulgated under those sections, from requiring, as authorized by Minnesota law or rule, additional information associated with a claim submitted by a provider.

Subd. 2.Compliance.

Subdivision 1a is effective concurrent with the date of required compliance for covered entities established under United States Code, title 42, sections 1320d to 1320d-8, as amended from time to time.
