Proposed 1 Year Delay in ICD-10 Implementation

On Tuesday, April 17, 2012, the Department of Health and Human Services published a proposed rule, entitled " Administrative Simplification: Adoption of a Standard for a Unique Health Plan Identifier; Addition to the National Provider Identifier Requirements; and a Change to the Compliance Date for ICD–10–CM and ICD–10–PCS Medical Data Code Sets"

The proposed rule can be downloaded at:

In addition to a proposed delay in the compliance date for ICD-10 (to October 1, 2014), there are proposals for a Unique Health Plan Identifier, and an identifier for entities that currently cannot obtain an NPI.

Comments on the proposed rule are being accepted until May 17, 2012 at 5:00pm EST.
