ICD-10

Oct. 1, 2015, is the compliance deadline for ICD-10 implementation. ACP strongly urges practices to continue work toward implementation by October 1, 2015. Claims testing is one of the most critical ways by which practices can prepare. End-to-end testing allows practices to submit test claims and receive a remittance advice back from the payer(s). Ideally, all practices should conduct end-to-end testing with all payers well before the deadline. Front-end testing (where practices can send test claims and receive a simple acknowledgment of receipt back) is available with CMS at any time until the compliance date.

July 6, 2015 Update: CMS has announced contingency plans for the transition to ICD-10. The October 1 deadline still stands but CMS will allow some flexibility in billing, quality reporting, and hardship.

For more information see ACP's press release and this CMS guidance and clarification.
