ICD-10 Implementation (Cont.)

A New Deadline Approaches

On July 31, 2014, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) issued a rule finalizing October 1, 2015 as the compliance date for healthcare providers, healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses to implement ICD-10-CM. Although previous deadlines were moved HHS has dubbed further ICD-10 delays a myth, and announced “no plans to extend the compliance date for implementation of ICD-10-CM/PCS; therefore, covered entities should plan to complete the steps required to implement ICD-10-CM/PCS on October 1, 2015”.

Implementation is inevitable

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has mandated the replacement of the ICD-9-CM code sets used by medical coders and billers to report healthcare diagnoses and procedures with ICD-10 codes, effective Oct. 1, 2015. ICD-10 implementation will radically change the way coding is done and will require a significant effort to implement. The time for ICD-10 implementation training is now, and through AAPC, thousands of organizations and individuals have become ICD-10 Implementation Ready.
