The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has announced that providers, clearinghouses, and billing agencies have “successfully” participated in the second ICD-10 end-to-end testing week, held April 27 through May 1.

Overall, participants in the week-long testing were able to successfully submit 88 percent of ICD-10 claims—23,138 test claims were received and 20,306 were accepted. The results are a step in the right direction. CMS reported that the acceptance rate for April was higher than January’s 81 percent acceptance rate, with an increase in test claims submitted and a decrease in the percentage of errors related to diagnosis codes.
