Homecare Insider, August 4, 2014

CMS has announced the new deadline for ICD-10 as October 1, 2015, fulfilling industry-wide expectations surrounding the upcoming implementation date.
The decision, which was issued on Thursday through a rule from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, “allows providers, insurance companies and others in the health care industry time to ramp up their operations to ensure their systems and business processes are ready to go,” CMS stated in a press release.
