Ohio Medicaid continues to work toward implementation of ICD-10 by the compliance date of October 1, 2014. We are 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.
The ICD-10 team completed the impact assessment by documenting all impacts to our policies, processes and systems, and is in the process of finalizing technical design solutions. We anticipate testing of systems changes will begin later this winter and will continue through the spring and summer of 2014.
As part of our testing plan, plan to test with certain providers, who will be contacted by our testing team in the months ahead. Our policy department has identified and is updating all policies (OAC) and processes to the appropriate ICD-10 terminology and/or codes.
