Gould & Lamb was one of the three companies to successfully complete testing and be in production for all of our thousands and thousands of RRE IDs. They say, "We have been processing live Medicare Query results for our clients for over 6 months and are ready to proceed with live MIR data feeds beginning 4/1/2010. We encourage our clients to continue to act proactively and not substantively delay their efforts for reporting, pending a review of the soon to be released User Guide (2/22/2010). There is no benefit to delaying until 1/1/2011, unless you are completely unprepared to report until this time, and you only increase your risk and clean up efforts in the future. Bottom-line: The claims you handle today will be reported tomorrow."
If you chose a Reporting Agent who has been unable to pass testing for the reporting requirement after over 2 years of prior notice and development, NOW is a good time to explore your options and make a change without penalty . Select a service prepared to take on additional MIR clients immediately and can successfully integrate both small clients and large clients regardless of needs and system complexities.

- All NGHP file data exchange testing will be completed by December 31, 2010. NGHP RREs that have completed file data exchange testing at any time are encouraged to proceed to production file data exchange status.
