The IHCP Is Ready to Test ICD-10 Claims with Vendors!

The Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) is ready to begin testing system changes for ICD-10. HP has developed a new test environment for ICD-10 testing. Have your trading partners contact the IHCP testing team at INXIXTradingPartner@HP.com before beginning testing to ensure that test files are routed to the ICD-10 test environment.

Note that there are two timeframes of testing for ICD-10: the remaining months in 2013 and also January - June of 2014.

April - December 2013

Testing in 2013 will ensure that claims process correctly in the new test environment when submitting ICD-9 or ICD-10 codes. Trading partners are encouraged to submit both ICD-9 and ICD-10 claim files during this time period. The new ICD-10-related claim rejection and claim denial edits can be tested at this same time. See the ICD-10 Software and Clearinghouse Vendor Newsletter for additional testing information. Your software or clearinghouse vendor should have received a copy of the newsletter via email; you can also find a copy of the newsletter on the ICD-10 Testing page - Software and Clearinghouse Vendors page on indianamedicaid.com.

January - June 2014

This testing period will focus on claims processing and end-to-end testing to include testing with the new All Patient Refined-Diagnosis Related Group (APR-DRG) grouper. Watch for additional information about end-to end-testing in future software vendor and clearinghouse newsletters. Also, be sure to check out the ICD-10 Testing page - Software and Clearinghouse Vendors page on indianamedicaid.com.
