This article instructs providers and clearinghouses on how to volunteer to be chosen for ICD-10 end-to-end testing with Medicare in July 2014. Potential testers must complete the volunteer form on the MAC website by March 24, 2014. To facilitate this testing, this CR requires MACs to do the following:
- Conduct a limited end-to-end testing with submitters in July 2014. Test claims will be submitted July 21-25, 2014.
- Each MAC will select 32 submitters to participate in the end-to-end testing. At least five, but not more than ten of the testers will be a clearinghouse, and submitters should be a mix of provider types.
- By March 7, 2014, the MACs and CEDI will post a volunteer form to their website to collect volunteer information with which to select volunteers. Volunteers must submit the completed forms to the MACs and CEDI by March 24, 2014.
- By April 14, 2014, the MACs and CEDI will notify the volunteers that they have been selected to test and provide them with the information needed for the testing.
