As outlined in the Medicare Supporting Document (8/1/08) for the new SCHIP Section 111 reporting requirements, the start date for Group Health Plans (GHP) was scheduled to be 1/1/09 and Workers Compensation, Liability and No-Fault Auto (non-GHP) was scheduled to be 7/1/09. Medicare issued a revised Implementation Timeline that gives the industry a bit more breathing room. Effective with this new memo, GHPs that currently participate in a VDSA must begin reporting on 1/1/09. However, those currently not participating in a VDSA will have until 4/1/09 to begin registration with 1st reporting required 7/1/09.Non-GHP will be required to register by 5/1/09 with detailed reporting taking place between 10/1/09 to 1/1/10.
