The X12 005010X221A1 Health Care Claim Payment/Advice (835) TR3 Implementation Guide is the HIPAA-adopted standard for claim payment/advice. This guide provides standardized data content for creation and use of the 835 transaction. The 835 is used throughout the healthcare marketplace by providers to post claim payments and adjustments to their accounting systems. CAQH CORE Payment & Remittance Operating Rules help the industry more effectively implement and use the 835 transaction to understand payment decisions and optimize denial management.
Join the CAQH CORE Team to learn more about new and updated CAQH CORE Operating Rules approved with overwhelming support in late 2020 for industry implementation, including:

The CORE Code Combinations organize claim denial and adjustment codes into unique business scenarios for more consistent code use across industry. CAQH CORE conducts a biennial Market-based Review (MBR) of the CORE Code Combinations to address industry business needs.
CAQH CORE Participating Organizations help ensure that operating rules continue to meet evolving business needs, by engaging in the rule development process and maintenance of existing operating rules. Work groups are open to all CAQH CORE Participating Organizations, and multiple individuals from the same Participating Organization may join. Because each organization has only one vote, participants collaborate with their colleagues to submit an organizational-level response during voting periods.
