About HIPAA Premium Payment Master

Return to chapter overviewNext page

HIPAA Premium Payment Master is a tool to receive and display, print or translate electronic premium payment records that come in the form of X12 820 transactions.

Some health plan sponsors, private industries as well as government sponsors will transmit the information on premium payments for members to administering health plans through the 820-transaction set. Though still rare, under HIPAA a payer has to be ready to accept X12 820 EDI transactions.

With the HIPAA Premium Payment Master, you can conduct premium payment-related e-business. Some employers, group sponsors or state agencies will use this new format to announce premium payments.
