Arkansas APCD Service Announcement (3/31/17)
The Arkansas APCD will be expecting heavy file submission volume over the next week to two weeks (3/31/17 - 4/14/17) with the arrival of the 3/31 deadline for all Submitting Entities to complete submission of 2016 Full Year Data.
During this time, responses regarding Data Validation of submitted files may not be as quick as you have traditionally experienced. While we will try to process and respond to submitted files in 24-48 hours from receipt, we may take up to 5 days to respond.
To reduce email traffic, responses will only be emailed to entities whose files Fail Data Intake.
For files that Pass Data Intake, Data Validation Reports will be automatically posted to the appropriate Portal Account on the Arkansas APCD website.
If you have submitted files and do not receive an email response within 48 hours, please check your Web Portal to see if Data Validation Reports have been posted for you.
Version 5.0.2017 of the Data Submission Guide (DSG) is REQUIRED for the March 31, 2017 submission of 2016 Data.
(4/3/17) Version 5.1.2017 of the Data Submission Guide (DSG) is posted.
Since publication, several technical changes have been identified as needed in the Arkansas All-Payer Claims Database DSG.
The changes identified in Arkansas APCD DSG 5.1.2017 are required for the June 30, 2017 data submission.
