Medicare date format changes to two digit years

For the last 17 years, Medicare insisted that all dates on a HCFA be PRINTED with 4 digit years. (Electronic claims are not affected.) But according to one of our users in Ohio, now they want ALL DATES to have 2 digit years. While this can be changed in the HCFA preferences setting, it will not (currently) affect birth dates. Our October update will fix that, specifically and only for Medicare.

If you are having a problem with dates in printed HCFA Medicare forms, we can fix that for you individually.
