Ohio Medicaid continues to work toward the implementation of ICD-10. Remediation of impacts to policies and processes is in progress. Systems remediation is nearing completion and the project is moving into the testing phase. Ohio Medicaid continues to be actively engaged with sister state agencies, managed care plans, trading partners, and many provider associations to ensure all of Ohio Medicaid will be ready for the transition to ICD-10 on October 1, 2015.
Since the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 was signed into law, the ICD-10 core team has been re-evaluating Ohio Medicaid’s ICD-10 implementation plan. Although the ICD-10 code set will not be accepted prior to October 1, 2015, Ohio Medicaid is moving forward with implementation work, which includes EDI testing.
Starting in August 2014, all active trading partners will be provided a window of time to test claims containing ICD-9 and ICD-10 code sets. End-to-end testing in Ohio Medicaid’s CERT region will begin August 1, 2014; testing in this environment will be used to verify that inbound and outbound transactions have been processed correctly. Additional testing will be available for entities not ready in August. If your organization is interested in testing with Ohio Medicaid, please contact our ICD-10 testing team at MITS_CGTESTING@medicaid.ohio.gov.
