ICD-10 To Be Pushed Back

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“DHHS”) has announced a proposed rule that would extend the deadline for healthcare providers to implement the new ICD-10 diagnosis coding system.  The proposed rule moves the ICD-10 deadline from October 1, 2013, to October 1, 2014.  The announcement of the proposed rule follows an earlier statement in February 2012 that DHHS was considering postponing the ICD-10 compliance date.
