June 15 is 5010 Testing Day

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will conduct a National 5010 Testing Day June 15 to help physicians prepare for the switch from ICD-9 to ICD-10 coding standards. Physicians who do not switch to ICD-10 by 2013 will not be paid for treating patients. To use the new coding system in electronic transactions, physicians must convert to HIPAA Version 5010 software standards by Jan. 1, 2012. >/p>
