ICD-10 Delay - What does it mean?
On February 16, 2012, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced a delay in the adoption of ICD-10 diagnosis codes. HHS recognized the administrative burdens associated with ICD-10 and the need to slow the transition. The previous implementation date was set for October 1, 2013. A new compliance date has not yet been determined by HHS.
As ICD-10 continues as a healthcare goal for HHS and other entities, readiness for ICD-10 remains an important objective for all healthcare providers to pursue.
SVA Healthcare Services, LLC will continue to provide education, analysis, and support for clients in anticipation of the new effective date. SVA encourages ongoing communication and preparation for ICD-10 during this extension period.
