CMS conducted the second round of end-to-end testing of claims with ICD10 data during the third week of April. MEDTranDirect, and one of our customers, Kimble Hospital of Junction, TX, were selected by Novitas for this round of testing.
As part of the testing process, 30 claims were sent for processing through our 837Direct product in a single batch. Most contained ICD10 codes and future dates, some contained ICD9 and current dates. All the submitted claims processed properly and the corresponding 999s and 277CA records were received.
In addition, CMS provided test 835 electronic remittance files that contained payment and adjustment data for the test claims reflecting how they will be paid in October.
