  • CMS Issues Proposed Rule to Delay ICD-10 Implementation

    Yesterday, the Department of Health and Human Services proposed a 1-year delay-from October 1, 2013, to October 1, 2014, to comply with the transition to the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition diagnosis and procedure codes (ICD-10).

    The ICD-10 compliance date change is part of a proposed rule that would adopt a standard for a unique health plan identifier (HPID), adopt a data element that would serve as an "other entity" identifier (OEID), and add a National Provider Identifier (NPI) requirement. The proposed rule was developed by the Office of E-Health Standards and Services, within the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), as part of its ongoing role to establish adopt standards for electronic health care transactions under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
