Center for Medicare and Medicaid • The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced on Wednesday that it will offer “end-to-end” ICD-10 testing for a small group of providers in the summer • The announcement marks a shift from the CMS standpoint where it had previously proclaimed that it would not conduct any external testing for providers • The CMS says the selected providers who “represent a broad cross-section of provider types, claims types and submitter types,” will submit test claims to the CMS with ICD-10 codes and receive remittance advice explaining the adjudication of the claims

CMS Testing • Through the testing, the CMS hopes to – Providers can submit claims with ICD-10 codes to the Medicare fee-for-service claims systems – Software changes made by CMS to support the switch to ICD-10 result in properly processed claims – Accurate remittance advice is being given • The change of stance by the CMS may also have been triggered by the criticism by the American Medical Association (AMA) • Which recently published a report concluding that the ICD-10 implementation costs for practices will be higher than expected

CMS Testing • Following the AMA report, its Executive Vice President and CEO James Madara vehemently called upon the CMS to “strongly reconsider” the mandate for ICD-10, in a letter send to the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
