Smooth Sailing for ICD-10 Claims
Good news for those nervous about adopting ICD-10: Most reports have gone through without a hitch. According to CMS, more than 88 percent of ICD-10 claims filed during the April 2015 to May 2015 testing period passed. Of the 12 percent rejected, only 2 percent were returned as a result of ICD-10 coding errors. The success rate in this round of testing was higher than that of the January 2015 testing session, which had an 81 percent success rate, said CMS.
