The National Technical Information Service (NTIS) publishes the CCI edits, along with several other commercial resellers who purchase the raw data from NTIS. According to NTIS, all of their customers, including subscribers and resellers such as Medical Management Institute, Medicode and St. Anthonys, received an errata sheet soon after NTIS was made aware of the errors by the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA).
We received 37 pages of changes from NTIS, confirms Tony Mistretta of the Medical Management Institute, one of the licensed resellers of the CCI edits. We have committed to making all the changes to the book by hand and sending out corrected manuals to our subscribers, he says.
Those who purchased CCI edits from another source also should look for corrections to version 6.1 in time for the May 1 implementation. For NTIS customers, this has been sent out in the form of an appendix, which must be cross-referenced to the version 6.1 product. Other resellers should have received the errata sheet from NTIS and made arrangements to get that information to their customers.
