You have one more chance to participate in CMS’ end-to-end testing. The agency is currently looking for approximately 850 volunteers for the June 1-5 testing week. You can volunteer on your MAC’s website.

CMS already completed one successful end-to-end testing week and the second is scheduled for April 27-May 1.
 
Why volunteer for end-to-end testing since CMS is continually conducting acknowledgement testing? With end-to-end testing, you not only find out whether your claim is accepted, you also get Remittance Advice. Always good to know that the claim made it the whole way through the system and not just in the door.
 
If you have already been accepted for end-to-end testing, you can still submit claims during the upcoming testing weeks. But you don’t need to sign up again. You’re all set.
 
We would love to hear from anyone who has participated in the end-to-end testing with CMS or any other vendor. Let us know how it went by emailing Steve Andrews at sandrews@hcpro.com. If you are planning to participate in either of the upcoming CMS testing weeks, we’d also love to hear from you.
