Providers expected October 1, 2015, to be the new ICD-10 compliance date and CMS made it official Thursday with the release of a final rule.
 
Congress forced the one-year delay when it passed H.R. 4302, “Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014″ in March. President Obama signed the bill April 1. The bill also forced HHS to delay implementation of ICD-10 until at least October 1, 2015.
 
HHS referenced the new 2015 compliance date as part of the 2015 IPPS proposed rule, released April 30. HHS then issued a statement advising the industry that it would release an interim final rule making October 1, 2015, the new implementation date, making it official with the release of the rule.
