Would you like to test your ICD-10 coding skills? Do you want to ensure your business can successfully submit ICD-10 coded claims to Medicare? If so, there is a great opportunity for you and your business.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is providing three (3) dedicated week-long opportunities for ICD-10 acknowledgment testing in 2014 and 2015. While acknowledgment testing does not confirm that a test claim would be paid or produce a remittance advice, it does ensure that you can successfully submit ICD-10 coded claims to Medicare. The ICD-10 acknowledgment testing opportunities will take place as denoted below. Be sure to update your personal calendar with these testing opportunities.
During testing, only test claims from the specific dates noted above can be used. No future dates of service will be accepted by CMD during testing. Each day of the ICD-10 acknowledgment testing, CollaborateMD will submit your Medicare test claims to our clearinghouse partner for acknowledgment testing with CMS.
To get started and participate in ICD-10 acknowledgement testing, we recommend that you:
We strongly encourage you to use the time between now and the October 1, 2014 deadline to successfully complete your ICD-10 implementation. We will continue to monitor ICD-10 announcements from the CMS, and provide you with the necessary updates to ensure your success in implementing ICD-10 for your business.
