Steps to take in March
Do you file electronic claims? Mark this week: March 3-7. CMS will conduct end-to-end-testing on ICD-10 electronic claims. The goal is to help you determine if all outbound test electronic claims were successful during this test run: submitted, received, and confirmed and/or accepted or rejected. To participate, practices should check with their local Medicare Administrative Contractors (MAC) when registration will open. Learn more about the ICD-10 end-to-end testing, or visit your local Medicare Carrier website for specific instructions. Your clearinghouse may be able to help.
Register now for ICD-10 end-to-end testing.
After participating in CMS testing, find out what your private payers are doing in terms of testing. They will likely be offering similar claims test runs.
Dermatologists who plan to attend the Academy’s 72nd Annual Meeting in Denver may take advantage of the opportunity to hear directly from experts about the ICD-10 transition. Visit www.aad.org/scientificsessions/am2014 and search for “ICD-10” to identify sessions that can help.
