A lot can happen in nine months—and that’s exactly the hope of leaders from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and professional organizations when it comes to being ready for end-to-end testing of ICD-10 claims by October 1, 2013. Yes, you read it right: By October 1, 2013—one year before the official October 1, 2014 implementation.


This may come as a surprise to some, prompting questions like these: Why should we be testing one year in advance of the actual implementation date? What is end-to-end testing anyway? What is CMS doing to make this happen?
