WPS Electronic Data Services is continuing to prepare and test the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) receipt of ICD-10 standards in the 837 transactions. If you are interested in testing with us, you can submit acceptance-only test files for ICD-10 validation testing during the first week of Aug. 2015.
Our testing process
Since the first ICD-10 announcement, we have been thoroughly testing and converting our systems through the entire claims process. We want to ensure a smooth transition to the ICD-10 coding implementation for all of our providers.
How you can test with us
This summer, we'll be testing acceptance-only files from our providers for ICD-10 validation. This testing confirms that your submitted claims will be accepted by our systems. Our next acceptance testing window will be from Aug. 3-7, 2015.
To test in our current environment, we've set the testing date parameters so you can submit past claims with dates of service beginning April 1, 2014, to a present date of service. This way you can utilize current data as ICD-10 testing samples.
How to submit live claims for ICD-10
To ensure accurate and timely claims processing, please submit claims with dates of service prior to Oct. 1, 2015 using ICD-9 coding. All claims for dates of service Oct. 1, 2015 and after should use ICD-10 coding. WPS will return all claims for proper coding that do not follow the mandated coding rules, without exception.
