ICD-10

Oct. 1, 2015, is the official compliance date for ICD-10. End-to-end testing opportunities are planned for late in 2014 and again in 2015. Testing dates and limited registration opportunities for comprehensive testing will be announced at a later time. End-to-end testing means practices can submit test claims and receive a remittance advice back. Front-end testing (where practices can send test claims and receive a simple acknowledgment of receipt back) is available anytime until the compliance date. ACP strongly urges practices to continue work toward implementation by the Oct. 1, 2015, compliance deadline.

In an effort to help member practices transition as smoothly as possible, ACP partnered with ICD-10 content developers to make the following resources available at discounted rates for ACP members:
