FAQ

In which version of the NACHA Operating Rules & Guidelines do I find the implementation specifications for the health care electronic funds transfers (EFT) standard, the CCD+Addenda?

The CCD+Addenda implementation specifications are detailed in the 2011 NACHA Operating Rules & Guidelines.  CCD+Addenda stands for Corporate Credit or Debit with an Addenda.


NACHA (NACHA The Electronic Payments Association) updates its operating rules and guidelines every year with a new version for use by financial institutions.  While the implementation specifications in the 2011 NACHA Operating Rules & Guidelines are the adopted standard for the CCD+Addenda, any version of the NACHA Operating Rules & Guidelines can be used as long as the implementation specifications for the CCD+Addenda do not differ from those in the 2011 version.


For instance, the implementation specifications for the CCD+Addenda in the 2012 NACHA Operating Rules & Guidelines can be used because they are exactly the same as those found in the 2011 NACHA Operating Rules & Guidelines.


We do not expect that the implementation specifications for the CCD+Addenda will change in future versions of the NACHA Operating Rules & Guidelines, but HHS will monitor the annual updates closely.
