ICD-10 Implementation Delayed Until October 1, 2015

“On April 1, 2014, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA) (Pub. L. No. 113-93) was enacted, which said that the Secretary may not adopt ICD-10 prior to October 1, 2015. Accordingly, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services expects to release an interim final rule in the near future that will include a new compliance date that would require the use of ICD-10 beginning October 1, 2015. The rule will also require HIPAA covered entities to continue to use ICD-9-CM through September 30, 2015.”



The partial code freeze will continue through October 1, 2015, the new planned implementation date. 
Regular updates to ICD-10 will begin on October 1, 2016, one year after the implementation of ICD-10.
