ICD-10 final rule released: October 1, 2015, is the new compliance deadline

August 28, 2014


The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has confirmed in a final rule that October 1, 2015, will be the compliance deadline for the implementation of ICD-10. The final rule requires the continued use of ICD-9 through September 30, 2015.

IBC is reassessing our external testing schedule, which will resume toward the end of 2014. We continue to ensure that our organization is fully compliant and ready to meet the new compliance date for ICD-10.

Stay tuned

More information will be available in the coming months regarding our external testing schedule. As was the case before, IBC will test with our pre-established testing partners and share our successes and challenges with our provider network.

We encourage you to keep up with the latest news and information regarding the implementation of ICD-10. Look for more details about testing and the availability of additional resources in Partners in Health UpdateSM later this year. You can also find provider resources at the ICD-10 section of our website.
