CMS updates checklists for end-to-end testing project

June 4, 2013

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has posted updated checklists for its end-to-end testing project based on feedback from health care providers, payers and vendors. The project is using ICD-10 testing to develop a “best practice” for faster and more efficient testing of administrative simplification standards. Under a final rule issued in August, hospitals and other entities covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act must transition to the ICD-10 coding system by Oct. 1, 2014.
