CMS released the following statement regarding ICD-10 implementation:
On April 1, 2014, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA) (Pub. L. No. 113-93) was enacted, which said that the Secretary may not adopt ICD-10 prior to October 1, 2015. Accordingly, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services expects to release an interim final rule in the near future that will include a new compliance date that would require the use of ICD-10 beginning October 1, 2015. The rule will also require HIPAA covered entities to continue to use ICD-9-CM through September 30, 2015.
MVP Health Care will continue to follow CMS guidance for ICD-10 implementation as it becomes available. At this point, we continue moving forward on testing with health care providers, facilities, trading partners and business partners as scheduled. View the ICD-10 Implementation Delay FAQs”
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established a new set of standards for the electronic exchange of HIPAA transactions between providers and payers. Included in this new set of standards is support for ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision) codes, which provide a better definition of diagnoses and procedures. MVP will provide current news on ICD-10 information to help you move to ICD-10, and information on MVP’s implementation of ICD-10. Please check often for updates.
