Although CMS has not officially established a new deadline for ICD-10 implementation after the 2014 deadline was delayed, October 1, 2015 appears to be CMS’s preferred deadline. In an unrelated rule recently released by CMS, it stated that it planned to schedule the ICD-10 transition deadline for that date.
CMS has since indicated that it expects to release an interim final rule in the near future that will officially set the ICD-10 implementation date for October 1, 2015. Like the prior deadlines, providers will be obligated to use ICD-9 until September 30, 2015.
