HHS proposes delay of ICD-10 until 2014

HHS is proposing a rule to delay ICD-10 implementation until Oct. 1, 2014.

The new date 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.

Here is the press release.

The proposed rule is CMS-0040-P and you can see it at the Federal Registrar website.
