The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has announced three separate weeks of ICD-10 acknowledgement testing to allow providers, suppliers, billing companies and clearinghouses the opportunity to determine whether CMS will be able to accept their claims with the new codes.

The three weeks of testing are: November 17-21, 2014; March 2-6, 2015; and June 1-5, 2015. While ICD-10 acknowledgement test claims can be submitted anytime up to the new planned October 1, 2015 ICD-10 implementation date, CMS is hoping that specifically designating these three weeks will “generate awareness and interest” and “instill confidence” in the provider community that CMS and Medicare Administrative Contractors are ready and prepared for the ICD-10 implementation.
