HHS officially delays ICD-10 to 2014

“The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius launched a final rule to make definitive a one-year proposed delay—from Oct. 1, 2013, to Oct. 1, 2014—in the compliance date for use of new codes that classify diseases and health problems. The final rule also establishes a unique health plan identifier.
These code sets, known as the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition diagnosis and procedure codes, or ICD-10, will include an increased number of codes for new procedures and diagnoses that improve the quality of information available for quality improvement and payment purposes.”
