The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that those providers who want to volunteer for ICD-10 end-to-end testing July 20-24 need to submit their information by April 17. The July testing will give a group of 850 volunteers the opportunity to find out if they are prepared to submit digital information to CMS for ICD-10.
CMS intends to select volunteers representing a broad cross-section of provider, claim and submitter types, including claims clearinghouses that submit claims for large numbers of providers. Testers who participated in the January and April end-to-end testing weeks are able to test again in July without re-applying.
Volunteers who participate in the testing must be able to submit claims with a future date and provide valid National Provider Identifiers, Provider Transaction Access Numbers and beneficiary Health Insurance Claim Numbers that will be used for test claims. To volunteer for the testing, register here.
