834 Transaction - Benefit Enrollment
The 834 Transaction is the HIPAA-compliant Benefit Enrollment and Maintenance Transaction. Its purpose is to electronically transmit enrollment and dis-enrollment information.
In 2004, DHCS implemented a 4010 834 solution, however, this was implemented along with a supplemental transaction that held eligibility history.
The HIPAA 5010 version of all transactions is scheduled to be implemented on January 1st, 2012. DHCS will implement a compliant 5010 834 on this date. The current FAME file will continue to be made available for a short period of time after this date to allow plans time to transition. Once this transition period has been completed the FAME file will no longer be made available to managed care plans.
Impacted Covered Entities
Internal DHCS program areas and DHCS Health Plan trading partners.
