The recent decision by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to set aside the week of March 3-7, 2014 as ICD-10 Testing Week is raising concerns among healthcare industry experts.

Amid a flurry of rumors that CMS stakeholders were reconsidering the need for end-to-end testing, the agency issued a change request (CR) for public distribution on Nov. 6. In the CR, CMS instructs all Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs), as well as the DME MAC Common Electronic Data Interchange (CEDI) contractor, to implement an “ICD-10 Testing Week” with trading partners for the aforementioned first week of March 2014.
