ICD-10 Implementation Resources
On January 15, 2009, the Secretary of the Department of HHS released a final rule calling for the adoption of ICD-10, the 10th edition of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) standards using Clinical Modifications (CM) and the Procedure Coding System (PCS). The final rule adopts ICD-10-CM for reporting patient diagnoses and ICD-10-PCS for reporting hospital inpatient procedures - both will replace ICD-9-CM.

The use of ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS applies to all "Covered Entities," that is health plans, health care clearinghouses and health care providers that transmit electronic health information in connection with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) transaction standards. On April 1, 2014 the Protecting Access to Medicare act of 2014 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 with a new compliance date for the use of ICD-10 codes beginning October 1, 2015 (Federal Fiscal Year 2016). The rule will also require HIPAA covered entities to continue to use ICD-9-CM through September 30, 2015.
