CWF/HIQA Eligibility Transition to HETS Is Coming Soon

CMS will be terminating access to the CWF queries through the shared systems ELGA, ELGH, HIQA, HIQH, and HUQA for Part A Providers. Medicare providers and their agents that currently access the CWF queries through the shared system screens will need to modify their business processes to use HETS to access Medicare beneficiary eligibility information.

In the video below, Bud Meadows, ABILITY Network, discusses 3 important reasons to start preparing now for the upcoming CWF/HIQA eligibility transition to HETS for Part A Medicare providers.
