The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has updated its ICD-10 end-to-end testing results to include participation rates by health care provider type. The volunteer participants represented a broad cross-section of provider, claim and submitter types. Nearly one-third of overall participants were hospitals. Health care claims must include ICD-10 codes for medical diagnoses and inpatient hospital procedures beginning Oct. 1. Providers can continue to participate in acknowledgement testing any time prior to the implementation date.
