Reading copies of new regulations about tuberculosis (TB) testing in long-term care settings and for health care workers, in both Word and PDF formats, are now available. These two regulations became effective on Friday, March 4. Facilities have 180 days (i.e., by August 31, 2016) to become compliant with these new regulations. CDC guidelines are the foundation of these new regulations.

TB Testing for Residents in Long-Term Care Settings - Word - PDF   TB Testing for Health Care Workers - Word - PDF The final formatting of these regulations is in transition and will be posted online in about a month. These reading copies have a larger font and have line numbers but have the same text as the marked up versions that are online: http://www.lrc.ky.gov/kar/frntpage.htm.

If you have additional questions or comments about either of these regulations, please contact Dr. Robert Brawley, chief of the Infectious Disease Branch of the Kentucky Department for Public Health (Robert.Brawley@ky.gov) and cite the page number and line number of the relevant attached files. Your questions and comments will be used to develop responses to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). FAQs will be distributed as part on DPH educational programs about these two regulations....

While ICD-10 is almost here, you still have time to get ready, but you must get ready now. Each day this week the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has been highlighting 1 of the 5 recommendations to help you begin testing: 1) Why Test Now, 2) How to Get Started, 3) Testing with Trading Partners, 4) Types of Testing, and 5) Testing Tips. Yesterday's information on Types of Testing is shared below:

Acknowledgement Testing In acknowledgement testing, providers and other submitters, like clearinghouses, submit claims with ICD-10 codes and ICD-10 companion qualifiers. While claims are not adjudicated, submitters receive an acknowledgement that their claim was accepted or rejected.

Tip: Be sure to use ICD-10 qualifiers, which differ from ICD-9 qualifiers. Some providers have reported that ICD-10 qualifiers had to be manually set up in their systems.

Beyond testing with Medicare as described below, you can check with your commercial health plans, clearinghouses and billing...

During the week of July 20 through 24, a final sample group of providers will have the opportunity to participate in ICD-10 end-to-end testing with Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and the Common Electronic Data Interchange (CEDI) contractor. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is accepting additional July volunteers from May 11 through 22. This is an excellent opportunity to participate in end-to-end testing with Medicare prior to the October 1, 2015, implementation date.

Approximately 850 volunteer submitters will be selected to participate in the July end-to-end testing. This nationwide sample will yield meaningful results, since CMS intends to select volunteers representing a broad cross-section of provider, claim and submitter types, including claims clearinghouses that submit claims for large numbers of providers. Note: Testers who are participating in the January and April end-to-end testing weeks are able to test again in July without re-applying.

KHA co-hosted a webinar on March 19 with the Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH) to address proposed changes to the regulations requiring tuberculosis (TB) testing for health care workers and in long-term care facilities. During the webinar, the DPH reviewed the proposed changes in policies requiring annual testing for employees of health care facilities and of physicians working in those facilities.

KHA recorded the webinar and has archived the recording along with the proposed TB regulation changes, the webinar PowerPoint slides and other information. You can review this at http://www.kyha.com/efforts-to-update-health-care-worker-tb-testing-requirements/.

DPH hopes to publish the proposed rule in April. A formal comment period will follow providing an opportunity to submit additional comments regarding the changes/additions to the regulation. The regulation could be in effect as early as October 2015.

During the week of July 20 through 24 a third sample group of providers will have the opportunity to participate in ICD-10 end-to-end testing with Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and the Common Electronic Data Interchange (CEDI) contractor. Approximately 850 volunteer submitters will be selected to participate in the July end-to-end testing. This nationwide sample will yield meaningful results, since the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) intends to select volunteers representing a broad cross-section of provider, claim and submitter types, including claims clearinghouses that submit claims for large numbers of providers. Note: Testers who are participating in the January and April end-to-end testing weeks are able to test again in July without re-applying.

To help you prepare for the transition to ICD-10, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) offers acknowledgement testing for current direct submitters (providers and clearinghouses) to test with the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) MAC Common Electronic Data Interchange (CEDI) contractor anytime up to the October 1 implementation date.

CMS previously conducted two successful acknowledgement testing weeks in March 2014 and November 2014. These acknowledgement testing weeks give submitters access to real-time help desk support and allow CMS to analyze testing data. Registration is not required for these virtual events.

The first event for 2015 is happening now: March 2-6. Mark your calendar for the next testing week: June 1-5.

How to participate Information is available on your MAC website or through your clearinghouse (if you use a clearinghouse to submit claims to Medicare). Any provider who submits claims electronically...

In regards to acknowledgement testing with providers, Change Request (CR) 8858 instructs Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) to promote three specific acknowledgement testing weeks with providers, and provide data and statistics to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to demonstrate readiness for the International Classification for Disease 10th Edition Clinical Modification (ICD-10) transition.

The Kentucky Department for Public Health (KDPH) has been reviewing the state regulation on requirements for health care worker tuberculosis (TB) testing. The Department has circulated language that would require annual TB testing for all hospital employees. KHA has gathered comments and input from hospitals and submitted comments on this issue to KDPH and the Office of the Inspector General (OIG).

KDPH has requested a meeting with hospital infection preventionists (IPs), employee health nurses and other relevant hospital staff to discuss the concerns hospitals have communicated as well as offer dialogue about the increased incidence of TB and related public health concerns. KDPH and the OIG hope that the discussion will bring about a consensus on the most practical and effective policy to meet everyone's needs.

KHA will host a meeting on July 29 at its headquarters in Louisville from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. (ET). There is room for 30 to attend in person and others may participate via conference...

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) planned to conduct ICD-10 testing during the week of July 21 through 25 to give a sample group of providers the opportunity to participate in end-to-end testing with Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and the Common Electronic Data Interchange (CEDI) contractor. The July testing has been canceled due to the ICD-10 implementation delay. Additional opportunities for end-to-end testing will be available in 2015.
