ICD-10 Enhanced End-to-End Testing Checklists Available

Posted by Crystal Parks on Jul 17, 2013 3:02:00 PM


Summer Brings Enhanced End-to-End Testing Checklists and More Listening Sessions!
National Government Services, Inc. (NGS) will conduct a series of interactive listening sessions throughout July and August 2013. Participants are encouraged to review the newly revised checklists and register for the upcoming sessions where in-depth reviews of the enhanced checklists will be presented.

To register for the listening sessions, email ngs.compliancetesting@wellpoint.com. Due to limited space, we recommend offices with multiple attendees register once using a single computer/phone connection or share a conference room to listen in.

While NGS continues to refine the draft checklists through September 2013, industry feedback and suggestions are welcome during listening sessions as well as via email at ngs.compliancetesting@wellpoint.com.

Listening Session Schedule
All listening sessions will be held from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, ET.  Vendors, Large Providers, and Payers can each choose from two dates to listen to and comment on an NGS review of the testing checklists:


July 22 


August 2

Large Providers:

Level 3 testing is the period during which end-to-end testing is performed with external trading partners and the trading partner is able to operate in production/production-like mode.
