Medicare ICD-10 "Acknowledgement" Testing
CollaborateMD Blog

Testing for Medicare ICD-10 "acknowledgment" took place March 3-7 by our clearinghouse, RelayHealth; claims coded in ICD-10 were sent to Medicare contractors to confirm they were accepted. The test run “went well” between RelayHealth and CollaborateMD.

While the testing gives some comfort to providers and practice for coders, it does not signify payer readiness for the new coding set.

Make sure you're ready before October to code for ICD-9 and 10.
