CMS Releases Final Rule Announcing Delay on ICD-10 Transition Until October 2014
On August 24, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the final rule that officially delays the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition diagnosis and procedure codes (ICD-10) compliance date from October 1, 2013 to October 1, 2014.
ASA supported this proposal to postpone the ICD-10 transition until October 1, 2014.
We believe this additional time is necessary to help a smoother changeover and are pleased to see that CMS concurred.
Review ASA’s official comments.
Review the final rule.
