On February 16, 2012, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS)
announced that they would initiate a process to delay the date by which certain
health care entities have to comply with ICD-10.
After working through the rulemaking process to re-examine the pace at which
HHS and the country will implement the ICD-10 coding system, HHS has proposed a
one-year delay of the implementation date. At this time, the proposed new
ICD-10 compliance date is October 1, 2014.
We will continue to publish articles — on the IBC Provider News Center
and in the Partners in Health UpdateSM
that focus on various transition-related requirements, including our ?ICD-10
Spotlight: Know the codes? section, which features examples of how ICD-9 codes
will translate to ICD-10 codes.
You can refer to the
section of our website for additional information about IBC?s
transition to ICD-10.
