Your ICD-10 implementation costs could rise and claims processing complications could arise if you fail to complete both internal and external testing before the compliance deadline of Oct. 1, 2015. If you delay the start of external testing or prolong its completion, you risk not having adequate time to identify and correct problems that could undermine your financial stability and operations.
