834 Enrollment Companion guide
Benefit Enrollment and Maintenance Companion Guide

Health New England has developed the following Companion Guide as a support tool for our Trading Partners when submitting electronic HIPAA 5010 Membership Enrollment. Health New England accepts such enrollment in the format described in the ASC X12 Standards for Electronic Data Interchange Technical Report Type 3, ASC X12 834, version 005010. (We also may refer to this as the TR3, or “the Guide.”) Health New England will accept enrollment in the format consistent with form 005010X220A1, published in June 2010.

All X12 Guides may be purchased from the Washington Publishing Company at http://www.wpc-edi.com.


Our Trading Partners may select from several different options for filing enrollment electronically:

  • Clearinghouses (Third Party Administrators) – For a complete list of Trading Partners that Health New England transacts with, click here.
