ICD-10 Acknowledgment Testing: It is not too late!
Submitters can submit acknowledgement test claims with ICD-10 codes up to the October 1, 2015, implementation date. Acknowledgment testing allows you to determine whether you are able to submit, and Palmetto GBA is able to accept, your claims with ICD-10 codes. Successful ICD-10 testing is essential to a successful ICD-10 transition. You m ay submit as many claims as you want and as many files as you want. You do not need to contact Palmetto GBA prior to testing. Providers who do not submit electronic claims directly to Palmetto GBA, should contact their billing service/clearinghouse to discuss ICD-10 testing of their claims.
