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.

July 31, 2015 Update: CMS releases Clarifying Questions and Answers Related to the July 6, 2015 CMS/AMA Joint Announcement and Guidance Regarding ICD-10 Flexibilities.
