General

For the Week of December 22, 2014

Question:

Do all providers have an opportunity to participate in the ICD-10 end-to-end testing that CMS is holding in April?

Answer:

During the week of April 26 through May1, 2015, a second sample group of providers will have the opportunity to participate in ICD-10 end-to-end testing with Medicare administrative contractors (MACs) and the Common Electronic Data Interchange (CEDI) contractor. CMS will select approximately 850 volunteer submitters from a broad cross-section to participate in the April end-to-end testing.

An application to participate must be submitted by January 9, 2015. To volunteer, go to your MAC's website for the form to apply. By January 30, the MACs and CEDI will notify the volunteers selected to test and provide them with the information needed for the testing.
