Not generated based on inbound claim format
When ready, we can “flip” the entire submitter from 4010 to
5010-835.
We can also “flip” on a provider by provider basis who gets
5010-835.
Request to switch from 4010 to 5010-835 should be done in
writing.
If a user doesn’t request to be flipped, they will automatically be
switched to 5010 effective July 1, 2012.
