This page contains Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) companion guides for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) version 5010 electronic transactions. The guides contain structure and specifications for transactions exchanged directly with Gainwell Technologies (fiscal agent for the IHCP). Providers and vendors developing software for electronic data interchange (EDI) may need to view multiple guides.
The IHCP companion guides are updated as needed. See the Change Summary section within each guide for a history of updates. When a system modification is forthcoming, significant changes are described in advance in the Upcoming Changes for IHCP Companion Guides section of this page.
The IHCP companion guides are intended only to supplement the adopted national electronic data interchange transaction set implementation guides (commonly called implementation guides). Information about accessing these implementation guides is available on the Washington Publishing Company website under Publications. The IHCP companion guides are never intended to modify, contradict or reinterpret the rules established by the implementation guides.
