MN statutes for electronic transactions
Minnesota Law Requires Electronic Exchange of Eligibility, Claims, and Remittance Advice Transactions
MN statute section 62J.536 requires all Minnesota health care providers and Minnesota licensed group purchasers to exchange eligibility inquiries and response, claims, and remittance advices electronically using a standard format. This effort reduces costs, simplifies and speeds up health care transactions while giving providers and health plans one set of standards.
