Passport is successfully submitting claims and receiving remittances from all 5010-ready trading partners. In instances where our trading partners are experiencing problems with 5010 transactions, we are able to quickly revert to the 4010 format so that our providers avoid cash flow issues. Passport is diligently converting additional payers as their new 5010 systems stabilize. However, many insurance plans have opted to wait until January 1, 2012 or thereafter to make this change.
Passport will continue to commit all resources to completing these conversions with minimal impact to our customers. As necessary, we have listed many of the most significant conversions.

FINAL RULES FOR ADOPTION
On January 15, 2009 the US Department of Health & Human Services issued two final rules for adoption:
- Updated HIPAA X12 standard, version 5010, for certain electronic transactions with a compliance date of January 1, 2012.
- Expanded ICD-10 Code Sets with a compliance date of October 1, 2013
Version 5010 includes updated standards for claims, remittance advice, eligibility inquiries, referral authorization, and other administrative transactions. Version 5010 also accommodates the use of the ICD-10 code sets, which are not supported by Version 4010/4010A1, the current X12 standard.
