The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) released a white paper to advise small practices on ICD-10 testing. This paper provides a starting point with testing for practices with less than six physicians. Testing is not required, but it can help providers and their practices be prepared for the transition of ICD-10 from ICD-9.
According to the WEDI, ICD-10 has the potential to change how claims adjudicate in payers’ systems. Performing testing will allow providers to have a better understanding of any potential impact these changes might bring and reduce the risk of unanticipated claims issues.
