Notice: Change Healthcare updating security on 10/15/21

We have been informed by our partner clearinghouse Change Healthcare (formerly Capario) that they will be implementing updated security protocols on all of their servers. This update will require all practices and partners that interact with Change Healthcare servers to utilize TLS 1.2.

This security update will be implemented at Change Healthcare on October 15, 2021.

To MacPractice offices, this security update means that all offices that submit to Change Healthcare, utilize B2B eligibility checking, or download ERAs will be required to update their MacPractice to build 7.3.15 or greater.

Without the required updates, MacPractice offices that submit will be unable to submit electronic claims, check eligibility through MacPractice, or download ERAs until the required updates are installed.

We apologize for the short notice and any inconvenience this may cause your office.
