CMS Delays ICD-10 to October 1, 2014

On April 9, 2012 at 10:10am Pacific / 1:10pm Eastern time the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid announced a one year delay in ICD-10 to October 1, 2014 (subsequently pushed back to October 1, 2015). Now HIPAA covered entities will have another 12 months to implement ICD-10 CM diagnosis codes, and inpatient providers and health plans will have 12 additional months for ICD-10 PCS for procedure coding.

For most providers and many health plans this delay will likely mean that most are still going to feel pressure to make the date.  We recommend that you not delay existing plans to comply.

The link to the official CMS update is here.
We will provide updates on our suggested best practices and timelines this week.
