ICD-10 Limited End-to-End Testing with Submitters for 2015
May 12, 2015
Beginning July 20 through July 24, 2015, CMS will offer end-to-end testing to a small group of providers. The group will be selected from providers, suppliers, and other submitters who volunteer to participate.
ICD-10 End-to-End testing includes the submission of test claims to CMS with ICD-10 codes and receipt of a Remittance Advice (RA) that details the adjudication of the claims. The purpose of the testing is to demonstrate the following:
Providers or submitters are able to successfully submit claims containing ICD-10 diagnosis codes to the Medicare FFS claims systems.
The CMS software changes made to support the ICD-10 diagnosis codes result in appropriately adjudicated claims (based on the pricing data used for testing purposes).
Accurate RAs are produced.
If you are interested in being considered for the ICD-10 End-to-End Testing, please complete the Volunteer Testing Form by May 22, 2015. All providers who submitted the Volunteer Testing form will be notified either way if they have been selected by June 12, 2015. Once the registration forms are reviewed, additional information will be sent to those that are selected.
Note: Only providers that bill directly to Medicare should volunteer for ICD10 End to End testing. Providers that submit their claims through a clearinghouse or billing service, should contact them to complete testing.
Thank you for your consideration of this next important step toward ICD-10 implementation.
