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.
- Plan your move from CWF to the HETS system NOW to ensure a smooth transition for your organization.
- The CWF is not going away — just eligibility inquiries from it.
- HETS will return all of the information provided by the CWF eligibility queries that is needed to process Medicare claims.
