ICD-10 Implementation Strategies

We will be sharing a number of strategies to help your practice successfully implement ICD-10-CM. Please remember to track your progress in your ICD-10 Implementation Tracker on AAPC’s website.

End-to-End Testing

The deadline to sign up for CMS’ end-to-end testing on April 26-May 1, 2015 is January 9, (volunteer forms are available on the MAC websites). End-to-end testing is full processing of claims through the payer’s system, including edits with production of an electronic remittance advice. This type of testing will give your practice its best view of preparedness for ICD-10.

CMS will be offering end-to-end testing the week of July 20-July 24, 2015. Contact your larger payers to inquire if this is something they also are offering, and what the parameters of participation include.
