ABS is currently in the process of implementing the ICD-10 platform. There are 2 phases to our ICD-10 implementation:
- Phase 1: The ABS claims processing system was upgraded to the ICD-10 platform in late 2014. The upgrade expanded necessary data fields and provided the capability to process claims in accordance with ICD-10 Federally mandated requirements. It was then fully tested and moved to production.
- Phase 2: Will begin Second Quarter 2015 and will include staff training and testing with ABS EDI Trading Partners and vendors. ABS will be compliant with ICD-10 10/01/2015.
