Health Care Administrative Simplification

The Health Care Administrative Simplification Act (ASA) of 1994 was enacted to bring about greater standardization and electronic exchange of health care administrative transactions, to reduce administrative costs and burden.

As part of the Act, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH)'s Center for Health Care Purchasing Improvement (CHCPI) develops and administers rules for the standard, electronic exchange of health care administrative transactions, pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, section 62J.536. These rules are commonly referred to as the “Minnesota Uniform Companion Guides.” This work is being undertaken in consultation with a large, voluntary stakeholder organization, the Minnesota Administrative Uniformity Committee (AUC). In addition, CHCPI is also undertaking or assisting with other MDH health care reform and administrative simplification efforts.
