Batch 270/271 files


Is anyone in this group currently, successfully submitting batch 270/271 transactions to a vendor, and the vendor is successfully processing the file back into Meditech?  I'm looking for the batch file if someone is willing to share out of their test system so we can compare the layout to what we are seeing out of our sytem.

Thanks in advance!

  • Hi Kristen,

    Our organization is currently working with Meditech and Inovalon to secure the 270/271 transactions. We're super close to implementation so it might be worth it for you to explore Inovalon. Let me know if you have questions!


  • Hi Rachel,

    We use Experian for almost all of our rev cycle processes.  Are you able to send requests via a scheduled batch?  We can manually select a list of visits and send via batch, but we want to schedule the requests so that staff don't have to remember to complete that step.  TIA!

  • Kristen,

    Ya you would be able to do that via a report out of Meditech into Inovalon each day. Currently we use daily batch reports that automatically go into the Inovalon system from Meditech daily after the midnight run. We run it for 7 days in the past and 7 days in the future to catch all scheduled and unscheduled patients. I would think you could use that same functionality and run it through as a 270/271. :)
