Although the New Year marked the deadline for Version 5010 compliance, CMS recently reminded providers that it will not exercise enforcement until April 1, 2012. Despite the 90-day discretionary period, CMS urged providers that they should complete the transition to Version 5010 as soon as possible. This extension will not have any effect on the implementation date for ICD-10-CM/PCS, which remains set for October 1, 2013.

To access Version 5010 information and resources, click here to access CMS’ 5010 webpage. An updated fact sheet outlines steps providers need to take to ensure a timely transition.

Compliance timelines for Version 5010 and implementation of ICD-10-CM/PCS are available for large providers, small providers, payers, and vendors. To view implementation handbooks for small/medium provider practices, large provider practices, small hospitals, and payers, access CMS’ ICD-10 webpage.
