One-year delay of ICD-10-CM/PCS proposed from HHS

Recovery Auditor Report, April 19, 2012

HHS released a proposed rule yesterday that announces a one-year delay for the implementation of ICD-10-CM/PCS. If this rule is finalized, ICD-10 would become effective October 1, 2014.

“Many provider groups have expressed serious concerns about their ability to meet the Oct. 1, 2013, compliance date. The proposed change in the compliance date for ICD-10 would give providers and other covered entities more time to prepare and fully test their systems to ensure a smooth and coordinated transition to these new code sets,” according to an April 9 press release.
