CMS has announced the new deadline for ICD-10 implementation as October 1, 2015. Although NAHC was anticipating this new deadline, CMS’ announcement makes the new date official.
“Deadline for ICD-10 allows health care industry ample time to prepare for change.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a rule today finalizing October 1, 2015 as the new compliance date for health care providers, health plans, and health care clearinghouses to transition to ICD-10, the tenth revision of the International Classification of Diseases.
This deadline 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 on Oct. 1, 2015.”
