The deadline to implement ICD-10 has been confirmed to be October 1, 2015. The implementation date was most recently postponed from October 1, 2014 to an undetermined date. In its statement announcing the new deadline, CMS explained that the delay will give the healthcare industry “ample time” to prepare for the change.
