CMS issues change request regarding ICD-10 testing week

On November 1, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a change request to instruct Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACS) to implement an official ICD-10 testing week with trading partners using the Common Edits and Enhancements Module (CEM) and Common Electronic Data Interchange (CEDI) and to solicit ideas on how else ICD-10 testing can be accomplished. The ICD-10 testing week has been created to generate awareness and interest and to instill confidence in the provider community that CMS and the MACs are ready and prepared for the ICD-10 implementation. The testing week will be March 3-7, 2014, and will allow trading partners’ access to MACs and CEDI for testing with real-time help desk support. The event will be conducted virtually and will be posted on each MAC’s and the CEDI Web site as well as CMS’ Web site. View the CMS change request.
