In their fourth update this year, CMS applied four change requests to Version 4.7 of the NGHP MMSEA Section 111 User Guide. All changes incorporated information published in prior Alerts. Within Version 4.7 you can find the new:

  • Recovery Agent process with dedicated fields, eliminating the prior TPA workaround;
  • Section 111 Coordination of Benefits Secure Website (COBSW) URL (https://www.cob.cms.hhs.gov/Section111/);
  • increased matching requirements for queries made with partial SSNs; and
  • response file naming convention for SFTP and HTTPS submitted files.
