CMS recently made it official that it is delaying implementation of the ICD-10-CM/ICD-10-PCS code sets until October 1, 2014. CMS has released two educational articles for providers explaining various implementation issues. The first article, “Updated ICD-10 Implementation Information,” provides an overview of the differences between the ICD-10 and ICD-9 code sets, and discusses provider preparation for the conversion. A second educational article addresses the “Partial Code Freeze Prior to ICD-10 Implementation.” The last regular, annual updates to the ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 code sets were made on October 1, 2011. On October 1, 2012 and October 1, 2013, there will be only limited code updates to capture new technologies and diseases. On October 1, 2014, there will be only limited code updates to ICD-10 code sets to capture new technologies and diagnoses, and there will be no updates to ICD-9-CM since it will no longer be used for reporting. Regular updates to ICD-10 are scheduled to begin October 1, 2015.
