ICD-10 Testing Week DONE!
It is true WCH Service Bureau is Ready!
For dates of service of October 1, 2014 (and after) providers are required to submit ICD-10 codes on their claims. CMS conducted a national testing week for current direct submitters to provide the opportunity to submit EDI test claims on March 3rd-7th in efforts to be fully prepared for the ICD-10 transition in October.
WCH IT department is pleased to announce that WCH have successfully completed the testing of ICD-10 claims. Claims with ICD-10 information were submitted to Medicare Contractors, as a result test claims received the 277CA acknowledgement which confirmed that the claim were appropriately accepted in to the Medicare system.
WCH AAPC certified professionals are now preparing for the AAPC ICD 10 certification. The ICD-10 certification is issued upon a completion of 16 hours of comprehensive ICD-10-CM training. The training includes evaluation exercises and case studies to assess your proficiency with the new code set. Successful completion of this course will satisfy AAPC’s certification maintenance requirements for ICD-10-CM.
