CMS Adopts Employer Identification Number As Standard Identifier In Health Transactions


CMS published a final rule in the May 31, 2002 Federal Register (67 Fed. Reg. 38009) establishing the Employer Identification Number (EIN) as the standard unique identifier for employers in filing and processing healthcare transactions. Mandated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), the standard unique identifier is intended to eliminate paperwork and streamline certain activities like enrollment and premium payment.
