More CMS “End to End” Testing Coming – In addition to the upcoming end-to-end testing week January 26-30, CMS will host additional end-to-end testing opportunities in 2015. As we did with this round of testing, RelayHealth will aggressively pursue the opportunity to be selected for these subsequent rounds. However, please note that beyond submitting an application for each MAC, we do not have any further influence or control over participant selection.
More CMS “Acknowledgement” Testing Coming – CMS will also be hosting additional “acknowledgement” testing weeks this month and again in March and June 2015. As CMS does not have any testing limitations during acknowledgement testing, all RelayHealth customers can participate in this testing by using our market leading ICD-10 testing platform.
Precision Healthcare Consultants is a proud RelayHealth National VAR (Value Added Reseller) Relay Health is pleased to announce that it has been selected to participate in the upcoming ICD-10 end-to-end testing with several of the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) for the testing week of January 26-30, 2015.
There will be three different testing weeks leading up to the implementation date for ICD-10, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently announced.
CMS lists the testing weeks as follows:
- First testing week: Nov. 17-21, 2014 (completed)

The testing is designed to validate providers’ ability to meet “technical compliance and performance processing standards” during implementation, according to CMS. The testing weeks will help to generate awareness and interest for implementation, as well as instill confidence in the provider community.
