ICD-10 Update: Provider Testing Scheduled

Instructions have been sent from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) to establish trading partner testing for ICD-10. Acknowledgement Testing will be held on the follow dates:

Nov. 17-21, 2014
March 2-6, 2015
June 1-5, 2015

While submitters may acknowledgement test ICD-10 claims at any time through implementation, the ICD-10 testing weeks have been created to generate awareness and interest, and to instill confidence in the provider community that CMS and the MACs are ready and prepared for the ICD-10 implementation. During the testing weeks, real-time help desk support will be available. Questions? Contact Kathy Reep, vice president of financial services, at (407) 841-6230.
