  • HHS Delays ICD-10 Compliance Date

    In an effort to address the provider community's concerns about administrative burdens, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen G. Sebelius today announced that HHS will postpone the date by which certain health care entities have to comply with ICD-10 codes. 

    The final rule adopting ICD-10 as a standard was published in January 2009 and set a compliance date of October 1, 2013—a delay of 2 years from the compliance date initially specified in the 2008 proposed rule. 

    APTA will update association members on the new compliance date forthcoming from HHS.   For general information and APTA's summary on the ICD-10 final rule, go to APTA's ICD-10 Web page.
