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.
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.
