TR3 Review (X12N Version 7030) – Process FAQs
TR3 Review (X12N Version 7030) FAQs and comments heighten industry awareness, provide a foundational understanding of the X12N Version 7030 process and encourage and support bodies and institutions in their participation.
Why are the TR3s coming out at different times for review?
A staggered approach allows for more focused reviews and hopefully, increased participation from the industry.
Who can participate in the public review and comment?
Public review and comment of the version 7030 TR3s is open to anyone. You are not required to be an X12 member to participate. EDI Academy strongly encourages industry-wide participation in this important step in the X12 standards development process.
Will EDI Academy be participating in comment of the version 7030 TR3s?
Yes. EDI Academy supports the standards development process and will be actively participating in the version 7030 review and comment process. We strongly encourage industry stakeholders and our valued customers to engage in the public review and comment process for the version 7030 TR3s.
How can healthcare organizations participate in the version 7030 review and comment process?
Each draft TR3 will be made available for review at forums.x12.org at the beginning of the review cycle for that TR3. Downloadable change logs are also available from the online forum. Commenters will utilize X12’s commenting tool available on the forum to submit comments. X12 has provided instructions on forums.x12.org for using the reviewing and commenting tools.
What does X12N do with the comments?
All comments are considered by the X12N Insurance Subcommittee. The assigned delegates and other X12N members work together to determine the appropriate action to take based on the comment (for example, accepts or rejects the proposed change) and responds to the comment in the online forum at forums.x12.org.
What happens after X12N adjudicates the comments?
X12N will hold a publicly announced Informational Forum, accessible virtually and in person if held during a Standing Meeting, during which the work group responsible for the TR3 summarizes the comments received and the actions resulting from the comment. Attendees may suggest additional changes at this time. After the Informational Forum (and consideration of any additional comments received), the final publication process begins. X12N plans to publish all version 7030TM guides together.
Will version 7030 of the HIPAA transactions be adopted under law?
It is unknown at this time whether the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will adopt version 7030 as the next transaction standard. Any regulatory activity will likely not occur until after publication of the version 7030 TR3’s and will occur independently from X12’s publication process.
