It's official: ICD-10 delayed to Oct. 1, 2014

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius made official a one-year delay in the implementation deadline for the ICD-10 diagnosis code set when she announced last Friday a final rule that sets the new compliance date at Oct. 1, 2014.  The delay, which was the subject of a proposed rule last April, is part of a final rule that will establish a unique health plan identifier, which HHS promises will "help cut red tape in the health care system." More to come on the HPID, as it's referred to. In the meantime, check out FPM's ongoing series of articles on ICD-10
